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