He’s One Of The All-Time Great Footballers, But Who Is He? [PHOTO]

 He’s One Of The All Time Great Footballers, But Who Is He? [PHOTO]

On Friday, Emirates, one of the official FIFA World Cup sponsors, will be announcing its new global ambassador. We don’t know who it is yet but the only clues we’ve been given so far are (1) he’s one of the all-time greats, and (2) you can see him in the above photo, making himself at home in front of a steamed mirror onboard the Emirates A380 plane.

The new global ambassador will be a part of the Emirates’ FIFA TV campaign. The question is, who is it?

We studied the photo pretty closely looking for clues, but we couldn’t figure out who it is. Maybe you or the other readers can guess who it is?

Post your guesses in the comments section below.

    • Mufc77 says:

      Fat Ronaldo was one hell of a player in his prime. The only opposition player to get applauded off the pitch by the old trafford fans.

  5. goatslookshifty says:

    Wasn’t fat Ronaldo working as an apprentice in London? No way he’s lost 40lbs. It’s Cannavaro I’m telling you.

  6. Burnsey says:

    Emirates sponsor Real, AC, Arsenal and PSG (I think)……..Perry Groves!

  7. San Fransiscan says:

    David Beckham.
