Julio Iglesias is known to be a die-hard Real Madrid supporter, but now he has confessed his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo – not only owing to his quality on the pitch, but also because of the fact that he doesn’t let his looks get in the way of his work ethic.

“Yes, I’m a Cristiano Ronaldo fan and there’s a very simple reason: because it’s not easy to be handsome and a good footballer”, the singer stated at an exclusive media event to launch his new album in Mexico City, to which dpa were invited.

“It’s not easy to have his drive to train hard, be strong and score goals while people are falling over themselves saying, “He’s so handsome.” No, but that’s the way God made him”, Iglesias went on.

The legendary Spanish performer was a promising goalkeeper at Real Madrid as a teenager, but saw his career prospects in the game wrecked by a car crash that prevented him from walking for a long period. However, ‘Los Blancos’ continue to have a special place in his heart and he remains football-mad in general. As he put it, “I like Messi, I like Neymar… I like all the top players. I like Chicharito too, for example. He has his own brand of magic”.
