Real Madrid has asked FIFA president Sepp Blatter to apologise for making fun of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Blatter recently told an audience at Oxford University that Ronaldo “is like a commander on the field of play” before strutting around the stage.

Blatter said he preferred Barcelona’s Lionel Messi. He said Messi was a “good boy.”

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said that club president Florentino Perez has sent a letter to Blatter asking him to “rectify what I consider a lack of respect for a serious and professional player.”
