Not refering to his race, just to his football style. It's just that players that come from either mediterranean or latin american countries tend to have such a different, less physical aproach to football, whereas with cristiano seems to be much more about speed and strengh. Even those that were strong themselves such as Zidane or Riquelme tend to be much more technically reliant.

I think that it makes his football that much more unappealing.

Cristiano Ronaldo is from Portugal and Portugal, like Italy, France, Spain, Romania are latin countries in Europe (the Latins are originally from Lazio "Latium" a region of Italy where Rome is located), so he is ethnically and football style-wise Latin.

That's exactly what i didn't meant. Read the post. I'm thinking about his playing style. I know he is ethnically latin.

Straight out Latin , stylewise. Influenced by the British style but you can see it in his feet he's got that Latin Touch.

He's Latin. Do you remember when he started playing? He was like an epileptic. 50 stepovers a second, shitty flashy moves, insane ball hoarder, passionate attitude... you know, Latin.

SAF put his feet on the ground and introduced some European grit, though.

I do agree his style is not completely latin nowadays, because of the influence ferguson and england had, and that same influence defines ronaldo as a player today, for better or for worse, we will never know.

But it was that same latin style that made sporting completely dominate manchester in a friendly, making the manchester players ask ferguson that same day to buy ronaldo, which he did, with a record fee for an 18 year old.

Ronaldo was always meant for success. And so, his style is indeed latin, albeit a latin style changed to fit the english physicall game.

Accusing a Venezuelan of being racist toward Latins/facepalm.

And yes, Cristiano has that Latin touch on his feet. His time in Manchester certainly made him a more physical player but he still has that Latin essence, with those flashy backpasses and stepovers.

Laughing Oh, the irony.

I'm sorry I forgot to mention he still scores for fun and is one of the best players in the world. But the fact is, he started playing like due to his roots. I don't know what the hell is "racist" about that. Latin players are usually very technical, skill, flair oriented players. We're the masters of pretty football. No shame on that.

So please, check your facts before you accuse someone of racism.
