WWE superstar and known Liverpool fan Sheamus has taken a controversial swipe at Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo.

One of the greatest players of all time, Ronaldo has never been immune to criticism, but out of all the negatives you've heard about the Portuguese legend, Sheamus' comments may be the weirdest.

While speaking to BT Sport, Sheamus was asked if Ronaldo is perfect for WWE.

Sheamus immediately replied, stating, “He wouldn’t last five seconds in the ring. He is too soft.”

Sheamus went on to state that Ronaldo has got no physicality before complaining that footballers these days go down "when the wind blows" or "a blad of grass hits their skin".

Sheamus' comments will definitely not go down too well with the millions of Ronaldo fans around the world.
