A Lagos-based Nigerian fan of Barcelona recently made a decision to abandon Barcelona for Real Madrid after the poor performance of Barca in the two-legged Spanish Super Cup favoured the Spanish capital side.
The 18-year-old girl who simply identified herself as Yemi told Sport Intelligence that she had admired the role Cristiano Ronaldo played last year in helping his country win the Euro 2016, as well as his club in the champions league, and she was left with no other option to move to support Madrid.
When asked if the poor performance of Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup played a role in her decision, she frowned and said she has been nursing the ambition to do that, but maybe this could be a coincidence. She however re-emphasized that Ronaldo played a major role in her decision.
The former Barcelona fan however said that though she had looked up to Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo as her stars, but Ronaldo eventually influenced.
She however noted that she was glad that Ronaldo eventually collected a medal during the Spanish Super Cup final, despite serving suspension.
