IShowSpeed reveals his favourite Man Utd moment about Cristiano Ronaldo, when he played for Real Madrid
| Last updated
YouTuber IShowSpeed told reporters about his favourite Manchester United moment, talking about Cristiano Ronaldo in 2013, when he was a Real Madrid player.
Speed's love for Ronaldo knows no limits, with the social media sensation perhaps the most fervent of the forward's fan boys these days.
The American decided that he would finally get to see his 'idol,' and person he reckons he loves the most in the world, play on Thursday night and went to Old Trafford for United's game with Aston Villa.
Unfortunately for the teenager, Ronaldo wasn't even in the squad for the Carabao Cup game, meaning he missed out on seeing his hero.
However, the buzz around Speed means that he was interviewed by reporters after the game, who wanted to know all about his fandom of United.
He was asked about his favourite moment from the club, and regaled reporters about a story from 'back in 2013,' about Ronaldo, who was then playing for Real Madrid, as you can see in the video below.
It's not exactly clear what incident the 17-year-old is even talking about, but nine years ago Ronaldo was very much playing for Real.
Speed talks about the forward breaking someone's ankles but he then says he doesn't want to talk about that, so it's not clear if he means the five time Ballon d'Or winner made someone fall over due to skill or thinks Ronaldo broke his own ankles.
The social media star also mentions Tottenham Hotspur, although like with pretty much all his football references it doesn't sound like he gets the name right at all.
Spurs definitely didn't face Ronaldo in 2013, having been in the Europa League in both 2012/13 and 2013/14, so lord knows what he's talking about.
Fair play to him, he seems to know the incident he's referencing but it's certainly lost on everyone else, even if the reporter didn't bring it up.
Speed didn't get to see the United star he wanted to but he did at least get to meet a club legend, not that he was really aware what was going on.
The American was enjoying a bit of corporate entertainment at Old Trafford and that meant he was introduced to European Cup winner Paddy Crerand.
The teenager was in awe of meeting someone who actually played at the Theatre of Dreams and when told the 83-year-old was an ex player he asked 'wait, David Beckham?'
After learning who the great Scottish legend was, Speed then asked Crerand if he'd played with 'Pepe,' by which he meant Brazil legend Pele of course.
Speed then found himself on television, with the Sky Sports cameras picking him out in the crowd and talking about he was missing out on seeing Ronaldo.

Despite missing out on his idol, the fanboy did at least get to see the Portugal star's club teammates put on an exciting match, at least in the second half.
They ran out 4-2 winners against Villa, with all six goals coming after the break, after Erik ten Hag's substitutions saved the day having gone 2-1 down.
