YouTube sensation Speed was unlucky for the second time in four days on his quest to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play for Manchester United.
The Portuguese star was not in the Red Devils’ squad on Sunday for their trip to Fulham, and his absence is believed to be due to an unspecified illness.
Sportsmail previously reported on Speed’s disappointment after flying out of the United States to see the 37-year-old Ronaldo – only for the star to be missing from Man United’s League Cup squad against Aston Villa on Thursday.

And video footage revealed the moment when he discovered his idol was not involved with Craven Cottage either – during a visit to the Sky football experts at the stadium.
When told that Ronaldo wasn’t playing and hadn’t even traveled to London with the team, 17-year-old soccer athlete Speed — real name Darren Watkins Jr — seemed distraught.
He said, ‘I don’t understand. I traveled all the way from America just to see this man. No!’
A second video showed Speed in the tunnel mispronouncing some of Fulham’s player names, led by Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves.
He was corrected when he pronounced the names of Cottagers such as Willian and former Man United player Andreas Pereira, but was praised for bringing Carlos Vinicius and Bobby Decordova-Reid close enough to their correct names.

YouTube sensation Speed, a huge fan of Manchester United, has become popular for his gaming and entertainment live streams.
His admiration for the former star of Real Madrid and Juventus was turned into a song ‘Ronaldo’ [Sewey]’, and he was even seen wearing a Ronaldo No. 7 jersey at Craven Cottage.
However, his desire to meet his idol will have to wait for another moment.
Ronaldo has been included in Portugal’s squad for the World Cup, which starts in a week, and Manchester United will return to action the week after the international final against Championship Burnley in the Carabao Cup.
