WATCH: Another BIZARRE Cristiano Ronaldo statue appears in Iran hotel
The hotel in which Al Nassr resided decided to erect a statue of CR7 which was placed at the hotel’s lobby
Cristiano Ronaldo’s craze around the world is unquestionable. The Portuguese superstar becomes the center of attraction wherever he goes. However, there’s quite a few problems that comes with the popularity, as CR7 found out in Iran. The Euro winner came face to face with a statue of himself in a hotel lobby that looked nothing like him.
No one can forget the bronze bust of the superstar at Madeira airport in 2017. The bust instantly gained popularity in social media due to its lack of resemblance to CR7.
CR7’s ‘unCR7-like’ statue
Now it has emerged that a unique artwork welcomed CR7 during his recent trip to Iran with Al-Nassr. The hotel in which the team resided decided to erect a statue of him. The statue was placed at the hotel’s lobby before CR7’s arrival.
But unfortunately, the statue bears little resemblance to CR7. It would not be wrong to assume that CR7 would have flinched a little upon seeing the statue.
Cristiano Ronaldo arrived on his first visit to Iran with the Saudi football club Al Nassr a few days ago. The team visited the middle-eastern country to play Persepolis in AFC Champions League on September 19.
Hundreds of soccer fans stormed into the Al Nassr hotel in Tehran to catch a glimpse of the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner. Chants of “Ronaldo, Ronaldo,” were heard all day long around the team hotel. Fans pushed past police, filling the corridors and public spaces of the Espians Palace Hotel.
To talk about the superstar, Ronaldo is enjoying his time at the Saudi club. He recently helped Al Nassr get full points against Al Ta’ee by scoring an 86th minute penalty. Al Nassr is just one point behind league leaders Al-Ittihad. Ronaldo’s team has 18 points from 8 matches and are the third placed team in the SPL table. CR7 has so far scored 10 goals in this campaign.
