Cristiano Ronaldo taunts Atletico Madrid fans despite losing
It was a tough night for Cristiano Ronaldo as Juventus succumbed to a 2-0 defeat in the hands of Atletico Madrid. The Spanish fans boo-ed the Portuguese forward after his defeat in the Champions League match. When things became unbearable, CR7 took matters to his own hands and attempted to have the last word. Juventus was handed a crushing defeat as Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin scored for Atletico. The match was also marred by controversy over the Video Assistant Referee.
Juventus’ hopes were ruined on February 20. Interestingly the club had signed up Ronaldo to better their chances at winning the Champions League. Following the boos that he received from the crowd, Ronaldo whipped out his fingers and flashed all five of them to the assembled Atletico fans reminding them he’s won five Champions Leagues. Of course, Atletico hasn’t won any Champions League titles. This was Ronaldo’s first return to Spain since he moved from Real Madrid to Juventus.
Ronaldo had won the Champions League title in 2008 with Manchester United and then won it again four times with Real Madrid. Ronaldo was seen showing five fingers on numerous occasions during the course of the match. Despite Ronaldo taking jibes at the fans, the match is surely going to be one of those things that the footballer would love to forget.
