thumbnail Hello,

The 48-year-old coach thinks the American actress is better looking than the Portuguese striker, while admitting the player's salary makes him a wealthy man

Betis coach Pepe Mel has mocked Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo following the forward's comments about fans' jealousy by suggesting he prefers the looks of Scarlett Johansson.

The Portugal international stunned everyone when he said last month the whistles he received from fans were driven by jealousy because of his looks, football talent and salary.

Speaking ahead of Betis' clash at Real Madrid, Pepe Mel played down Ronaldo's remarks, saying the 26-year-old does not top his list of beautiful people.

"The thing about him being good looking is debatable," he told Antena 3. "I like Scarlett Johansson more than Cristiano Ronaldo.

"About him being rich, that is something obvious, we are talking about figures and no one can argue with that."

Pepe Mel's side travel to the capital to face Real Madrid this Saturday.
