The sheer irony of a WWE wrestler critcising a professional footballer for enjoying the camera a little too much.
For some reason BT Sport wanted Sheamus’ views on Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United this summer and gave his verdict on the forward’s standing as one of the all-time greats.
"Is Cristiano Ronaldo one of the greatest players ever? Absolutely not. But he's one of the best of the last decade."

I highly doubt those viewing the shot cared (they were either WWE fans or football fans) for Sheamus’ thoughts on Ronaldo – but maybe it was a just an opportunity to use a huge name in sport and draw some headlines.
The wrester is known to be a Liverpool fan and you can tell he’s not entirely convinced by what he says when talking about football.
In claiming Ronaldo is not the best player of all-time, Sheamus seems to think liking the camera a bit too much is a valid reason for his opinion.
