Modern Day Slavery : the Case of Cristiano Ronaldo

Fifa president Sepp Blatter commenting on Mancherster United refusal to sell C. Ronaldo to the Spanich club Real Madrid termd the incident as “modern-day slavery”. C. Ronaldo responded, yes I am a slave. But these slaves of the modern day world order, is the top-echelons of slavery. They are professional football players, earning bucket full of dollars or pounds and utilised by the sport clubs, media, and multiple resources. They are modern day -icons, like the Gladiators of the ancient Rome.

They have fame, they have money, they have all but they have to serve some body a la Bob Dylan, and once you dont resist, then you become aware of yourself being a meta, that’s what happens nowadays in the incident of C. ronaldo.
