No Henry was arrogant. The fake humbleness when he scored a screamer.... He just kept a lid on his arrogance to a degree. I think every footballer has a right to be arrogant when they're as good as Ronaldo and Henry.
I'm the sort of person that doesn't give a monkeys who the player plays for-I'll give credit where credit is due as I know a lot of football fans do. OK Gerrard plays for Liverpool, take nothing away from him he's still a fantastic footballer. So people hate Ronaldo's attitude
but is that overridden by his excellence on the pitch?
You can't hate Ronaldo over the World Cup and the fact that he celebrates scoring what quite frankly are excellent goals. His freekick against Sporting sticks out for his subsequent celebration.
And is being a "prick" synonomous with arrogance?
Of course for footballers you can add a level on top of the standard person's arrogance/confidence.
Henry knew he was amazing, we all knew he was amazing but even then I wouldnt call him arrogant for a top/world class footballer? Not near where I'd place Ronaldo anyway.
I'll happily admit Ronaldo is a world class player (one of the best around) still doesnt stop him having one of those faces you just want to punch
A friend of mine (girl) she knows very little about football but even she thinks Ronaldo has a face you want to punch (and she thinks Torres is a pretty boy who needs a damn haircut )
I stopped watching England a few years ago and honestly dont care/dont blame Ronaldo/think Rooney is a scrote anyway.
Nah it's not synonymous but then there's plenty of things I'll call him Whatever rolls off the tongue
