Conor McGregor has shown off his footballing skills in a video directed at Sergio Ramos as the two go back and forth on Instagram.
While holidaying back in his native Ireland, the Notorious One can be seen draped in designer clobber lashing a left footed strike into the bottom left corner, to which the Madrid star responded with a seal of approval.
Turns out McGregor can break a net just as well as he can a jaw.
Ramos went on to invite the former two-weight UFC champion to train with the Madrid team. The Spain international commented: “Fancy a training session at Real Madrid? More than welcome to join us anytime.”
For the sake of all sports, we sincerely hope this happens. The two hold notoriety in each of their respected trades for their outlandish bastardy, so it’s really a match made in heaven.
After scoring a screamer in training, Ramos imitated McGregor’s ‘Billi Strut’ in a video directed at the Notorious One, prompting the love affair between the two.
With 26 red cards in his trophy laden career, Ramos has been dismissed for an array of devilish ploys. The booting of Messi in 2010 springs to mind, or the unpunished ‘assault’ on Mohamed Salah are both acts worthy of an octagon.
Learning a few fighting tips from McGregor would prove to be a terrifying prospect for any opposing striker facing Ramos, and it’d probably boost his red card tally, but c’mon. It’s all entertainment, right?
The Notorious One grew up in Dublin playing football and is a self-proclaimed Manchester United and Celtic fan.
