Cristiano Ronaldo trolled by ex-Barcelona president Joan Laporta after missing penalty
Ronaldo had missed a penalty against Malaga and Laporta took to Facebook to mock him
Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta took to Facebook to troll Cristiano Ronaldo. The Spaniard who was originally a lawyer was the president of Barcelona from 2003-2010.
This all started before Real Madrid’s clash against Roma when Cristiano Ronaldo was asked about his thoughts on Lionel Messi’s tandem penalty with Luis Suarez.
Ronaldo said, “I’ll be precise with this. I know why Leo did this, but I won’t elaborate anymore. You can now think what you want.”
On Sunday, Ronaldo missed a penalty against Malaga when the score was 1-0 in favour of Madrid. Carlos Kameni pulled off a fine save for Malaga from Ronaldo’s spot kick, and Malaga later equalised in the second half. As a result, Real Madrid are 9 points behind Barcelona in La Liga, which looks to be an insurmountable target.
Now, Laporta put up a picture of Ronaldo on his Facebook account with the caption which said: “I know why I missed the penalty, but I’m not gonna say it.”
This picture was slightly unexpected from the 53-year-old, as a person of his position and age would not be expected to indulge in something like this.
Real Madrid’s title challenge all but over after draw against Malaga
Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty as Real Madrid dropped points they could ill afford to squander with a 1-1 draw at Malaga on Sunday that allowed Barcelona to maintain their nine-point lead at the top of La Liga. Barcelona, who won 2-1 at Las Palmas on Saturday, have 63 points to Real's 54 with 13 matches of the season remaining.
Real face Atletico Madrid next in La Liga which will be a do-or-die match for Zidane’s men in terms of the title race.
