Jesse Lingard told Speed Cristiano Ronaldo knows who he is, his reaction was so wholesome

YouTube sensation IShowSpeed produced a wonderful reaction when Jesse Lingard told him that Cristiano Ronaldo knows who he is.

Speed was chatting to the former Manchester United midfielder over FaceTime and asked Lingard if Ronaldo knows him.

“Yeah, definitely bro!” Lingard replied.

The Nottingham Forest star added: “I swear, you know when I was there, I was saying ‘Sewey’(Speed’s own version of Ronaldo’s SUI celebration). He knows bro, the GOAT knows you.”

Speed, in disbelief, said: “Seriously, like don’t troll!”

Lingard then said: “I swear, the GOAT knows you bro. Every day, Anthony Elanga and all that were on it. Bro, trust me he knows you. You’re a celebrity now big man.”

Speed’s face was filled with joy as he couldn’t contain his smile at the fact that his favourite player knows who he is. A wholesome moment.

It is no secret that Speed is a huge fan of Ronaldo, the American showed his anger on Monday night when he found out his idol was not named the winner of the Ballon d’Or.

He said: “If it’s not Ronaldo, I’m going to be pi**ed. How did Benzema win bro, he had one good season.”

As a result of his outburst, fans took to social media to make fun of the YouTuber.

One fan said: “He would say Ronaldo was better than everyone, even if he scored no goals.”

Another commented: “Bro went hard on Benzema.”

A third fan joked: “Tell me you don’t watch football without telling me you don’t watch football. How can he seriously think Ronaldo deserves the Ballon d’Or?”

Speed’s real name is Darren Watkins Jr. and he is a YouTuber and live streamer, he often streams whilst playing online games.

He shot to fame through his dramatic and over-the-top reactions and personality, which attracted a lot of fans.

Speed took just a few days to reach more than one million subscribers, which made him one of the fastest-growing channels of 2021.

By October 2022, he has more than two million followers on Instagram, six million on TikTok, and 12 million on YouTube.
