Michael Owen Branded 'Disrespectful' After Posting Picture Of Ronaldo On Twitter

Michael Owen might get a little more stick than he probably should but my word he doesn't help himself! The BT Sport pundit was accidentally massively disrespectful to legendary striker Ronaldo.

Real Madrid ran wild on Granada in La Liga today with Los Blancos winning 5-0 having been four goals up inside half an hour before Casemiro second half goal.

Before the beginning of the game it was the first time for the Bernabeu crowd to welcome Cristiano Ronaldo home with his most recent piece of silverware, the 2016 Ballon d'Or trophy.

To celebrate the achievement Real invited along the rest of their former Ballon d'Or winners and as well as Figa and legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo that somehow included Michael Owen.

After the match Owen managed to disrespect the Brazilian by accidentally fat shaming the former World Cup winner:

I'd say "stick to the day job" but I've heard Owen's punditry.

This truly is facepalm territory!
