Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reacted angrily to being substituted at the weekend, and was reportedly put in his place by captain Sergio Ramos.
Los Blancos continued their quest for the La Liga title, beating Athletic Bilbao 2-1 away from home on Saturday.
Ronaldo was unable to get on the scoresheet during the fixture, but did provide the assist for Karim Benzema’s opener in the first half.
The Portuguese was taken off with 10 minutes remaining in the clash, and he reacted angrily to the decision, according to the Daily Express.
Ronaldo was reportedly seen swearing to himself as he exited the pitch on Saturday, with other reports claiming he was upset that Zinedine Zidane chose to take him off instead of Gareth Bale.
Real captain Ramos is said to have reprimanded the forward after the final whistle, reminding the Portugal captain that he needs to help Los Blancos secure the league title.
The former Manchester United star might have been annoyed that he did not score in the game, with many pundits and fans alike claiming he has not been at his best this season.
Ronaldo has scored 26 goals and assisted a further 11 strikes in 34 matches across all competitions for Real in this campaign.
Real Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo has launched a new strike!
Like two years ago, Cristiano Ronaldo would have decided to stop speaking to the media until further notice. Even until the end of the season.
Between Cristiano Ronaldo and the Spanish press, it’s a little « I love you … my no more ». Two years ago, the Real Madrid winger refused to answer the media for several weeks, tired of rumors about his personal life after his break with Irina Shayk. It is also remembered that CR7 had snubbed the journalists who were waiting for it after leaving court in July after being summoned by the courts in the investigation for tax evasion.
« I say one thing and you write another, how do you want me to speak? »
A new chapter of this guéguerre should soon be played. According to the daily Marca, the Portuguese international has warned his family and leaders of his desire to stop responding to the media, including in the context of promotional operations. A reaction to recent rumors in the Spanish press that Cristiano Ronaldo and his captain Sergio Ramos are cold. « I say one thing and you write another, how do you want me to speak? « , Also launched CR7 in the mixed zone Tuesday night after the victory of Real Madrid on the lawn of Apoel Nicosia (6-0).
In short, it is only on the ground that Cristiano Ronaldo now intends to speak. This is not a very good sign for opposing defenders …
Neymar totally annoyed by the rumor of Real!
It’s been just three months since Neymar became Parisian that the rumors giving it start to emerge. Indeed, some say that if the Brazilian joined the PSG, it is not to stay in the long term but simply to join Real Madrid without having to make a direct transfer between the two enemies of Liga: Barça and Casa Blanca.
Already very touched by the rumors explaining a certain malaise in Paris, which caused his crying in a press conference, the one who yesterday scored twice this time reacted quite differently to a question on a potential transfer. While the journalist had not finished asking him if it was possible to see him leave the Paris Saint-Germain, he dropped a scathing: You are painful with that « , leaving the mixed zone. See instead.
On the same evening, Neymar returned to the state of form of his team, and wants to be patient: « We must keep our feet on the ground. We know very well that everything we do in this phase of hens will no longer count in the next round. We are in a good period, but we must continue. «
The big lie Lionel Messi!
While his extension is still expected from FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi is far from considering a departure for Manchester City. Pep Guardiola would not want it.
In the British press, this information is presented as « shocking ». No, Lionel Messi should not become one of the new Premier League stars by joining Manchester City. If the British tabloids are trying to stir up trouble in recent months, the Spanish media Don Balon believes that this is a « big lie » because « La Pulga » should stay at FC Barcelona, even if its extension to in 2018 is still not official.
It’s simple, Pep Guardiola would not consider strengthening his staff with the Argentine prodigy. On the one hand, the Catalan coach does not really want to put Blaugranas fans back on their heels by stealing the idol of Camp Nou. Above all, the two concerned do not necessarily get along very well, no matter if they took everything with the FCB during 4 seasons (2008-2012). Their relationship was even rather tense during the last season of Guardiola on the bench of Barcelona.
Since, the exchanges between the two men are limited to simple formulas of politeness, like « how are you? », « Good luck » or « take care of you », if one believes Don Balon. It certainly did not prevent Pep Guardiola to praise Lionel Messi recently, claiming that the native of Rosario was the best player in the world « not because he is able to dribble 3 or 4 players », but « Because it does it better than anyone ».
