The professional football freestyler who is currently in Ronaldo’s home country of Portugal has challenged the Real Madrid superstar to a skills contest.
It will really require tons of guts to be able to call out the best player in the world at the moment to a freestyle contest. The only ones who will pull out something very daring like this are those who genuinely believe they possess incredible talents to take on Cristiano Ronaldo on any given day.
In truth, Sean Garnier is no amateur to the cause. The 32-year-old Frenchman may not be popular in regular football but he’s made quite a name for himself in the freestyle and street genre of the sport. Having started out in clubs such as Auxerre and Troyes, his professional career hit a snag due to frequent injuries.
Garnier set out on the path of the less physical urban freestyle art where he formed his own team dubbed Street Style Society (S3 Society). The group combines freestyle football, freestyle basketball as well as some other street sports styles to entertain viewer via their YouTube channel, social media pages, and live performances at diverse settings around the world.
This is a promo video they featured in alongside Ronaldo’s Real Madrid teammate Gareth Bale:
The French Freestyle Football champion is in Porto and his current location, being the home country of Cristiano Ronaldo as well as renowned futsal and beach soccer players Richardinho and Madjer, has caused him to challenge them to a duel via Facebook.
The four-time Ballon d’Or may not be showing much of his trick-box abilities in games in recent years but he definitely has bags of them. Priorities wouldn’t allow him to honor the allurement of Sean Garnier at the moment but hopefully, it will be some time soon. Indeed, this is emphatically a showdown really worth looking forward to.
In the meantime, Sean Garnier can check out the freestyle session Cristiano Ronaldo had with Jeremy Lynch of F2Freestylers during his Manchester United days.
