5 instances when Cristiano Ronaldo shut down journalists
Ronaldo is one of the best on the field and off it Cristiano Ronaldo was not in a happy mood during a recent Champions League press conference. The Real Madrid forward was quizzed by journalists about his poor scoring form away from home.Ronaldo has not scored an away goal since November 29, 2015, that too against Eibar in La Liga and the Portuguese forward let rip on a journalist that asked him about his lack of goals.“Who else has scored more goals away from home than me since I arrived in Spain? Name one player who has scored more than me. No answer? OK. Thank you,” he said before he walked out of the press conference.The reporter tried to ask the question to the Real Madrid forward once again but got no response. This wasn't the first time journalists have upset Ronaldo, the three-time Ballon d'Or winner does have a mean streak and that isn't reserved for goalkeepers or defences. Here are five instances when Ronaldo snapped back at journalists:
#1 No feigning injury
Being a top level performer, Ronaldo hasn't been prone to injury and that is a good thing since we get to see him score amazing goals for Portugal and now for Real Madrid.
When Ronaldo was suffering from a calf injury in 2014, there were suggestions that he was playing even though he was not completely fit. A reporter tried to question Ronaldo and asked him if he was irresponsible playing with an injury that has not healed completely, especially in a match against Valladolid.
"I left at the 8th minute. Against Celta, I didn't travel. Here at home, I left. If I was to force it, I would have played without giving my best. But you can't give your all when you leave."
"The players give their all and then they break. That's forcing it. If you don't give your all, you don't break, and that's what happened to me."
