The 50 Most Hated Athletes Right Now

16. Cristiano Ronaldo

Sport: Soccer
Team: Real Madrid
Hateful lowlight: Falling out with manager Jose Mourinho in 2013, leading to Mourinho's departure from Real Madrid.

The "most expensive footballer in the world" also comes with the title of "most hated footballer in the world." His high wages, hubris, narcissism, defensive nature, playboy swerving, gelled hair, constant whining, and reputation for going to ground easily makes him pure footballing evil. It doesn't help that he's played for both Manchester United and Real Madrid, the two most hated/beloved clubs in the world. When questioned on why he gets booed, he came up with an answer that only Ronaldo could conjure up: "I think that because I am rich, handsome, and a great player people are envious of me." Actually, that sounds like something Kanye would say. Case in point then.
