MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid has asked FIFA President Sepp Blatter to apologize for making fun of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Blatter recently told an audience at Oxford University that Ronaldo is “like a commander on the field of play” before strutting around the stage.

Blatter said he preferred Barcelona rival Lionel Messi. He said Messi was a “good boy.”

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says club President Florentino Perez has sent a letter to Blatter asking him to “rectify what I consider a lack of respect for a serious and professional player.”

FIFA included Ronaldo and Messi on Tuesday among the 23 finalists for the Ballon d’Or award, given to the world player of the year.
