Memphis Depay says Cristiano Ronaldo is a player that should be respected and not hated due to his charity work.
The Portuguese star is an idol that Memphis Depay worships and he does not understand why he is always criticised.
“I’ve got a great deal of admiration for guys who are successful,” Depay told L’Equipe Magazine. “I don’t understand why some feel hatred towards them.
“Is Ronaldo arrogant? Who’s to say what is arrogant. He’s a man who has been successful in his life and has, without doubt, done many good things for children and poor people in his country. He deserves respect.”
