Okay, since we talked about this video extensively on the show this morning, I might as well post what I’ve been talking about. Plus I found a video with English subtitles so we understand what the hell they were saying. Sara Carbonero is the name of Iker’s girlfriend, and she is not new to controversy. In the 2006 World Cup, Spain’s heartbreaking loss to Switzerland was largely blamed on Sara being too close on the field, supposedly distracting her goalie boyfriend. Iker failed to block the single winning goal of the game, and people pointed the accusing finger at Sara, who happens to be a sideline sportscaster, being within eyeshot of her famous boyfriend. She later shot back at her critics, dismissing claims that she destabilized the team with her presence. And when she interviewed Iker, she bluntly asked him, “How did you muck this up?”
Of course as we all know, four years later, she interviews him again but under much better circumstances. Trying to be as professional as they can, they did the interview until his emotions got the better of him. So despite their respective professional roles, I guess he realized that he was talking to the woman he loves, so he couldn’t stop his emotions from expressing themselves. Haaay, es muy sweeto. Yo estoy mucho kiligo mirando el video. Iker y la syota, lovar each othro muy muy.
