Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal has sparked outrage by donning Atletico Madrid colours during their Europa League semi-final against Arsenal.

Nadal witnessed the second-leg game at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid wearing the home team’s scarf.

This, however, didn’t go down with his fans as Nadal – a nephew of former Barcelona defender Miguel Angel Nadal – is known to be a big-time fan of Real Madrid, who also happen to be the rivals of Atletico.

“Nadal “supports” Real Madrid, supported Barca growing up because his uncle played for them, and is now wearing an Atleti scarf. The ultimate snake, Federer would never,” a furious wrote.

A few users also brought in the Roger Federer comparison following Nadal’s gesture.

“Eh? Isn’t Rafa Nadal meant to be huge Real Madrid fan?!? He is looking delighted with the Atleti win.. Further proof Federer is the [GOAT],” a tweet read.

“Nadal wearing an Atléti scarf? Always thought Federer was the superior tennis player,” another one wrote.

Meanwhile, Nadal, the world No. 1, is currently in the Spanish city for the Mutua Madrid Open, an ATP 1000 event, which is scheduled to commence on Monday.
