Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was in dominant mood against Real Sociedad in the weekend, and notched a hat-trick to help his team register a commanding 5-2 win, but he barely seemed as cheerful as you would expect.
According to reports surfacing in Spanish and British media, the Portugal international lost his cool with Los Blancos fans after the match.
You would usually expect someone who is taking home the match ball to be in a far more jovial mood, but Ronaldo was clearly left frustrated after the night’s events.
While the team showed some of its best form in a disappointing campaign in their La Liga title defence, many fans were seen voicing their frustrations at French forward Karim Benzema, after the striker missed a relatively easy chance towards the end of the match.
Ronaldo, who didn’t appreciate this very much, was seen shaking his head and waving his finger at those fans, according to the Daily Mirror.
The website goes on to claim that the 33-year-old then gestured for the supporters to clap rather than boo, although the incident was not the first time the Real faithful have displayed their gloom.
Even when Ronaldo provided the assist for Lucas Vazques to open the scoring in the first minute, many fans did not celebrate, perhaps in protest of the current season Los Blancos are having.
While the victory was very much needed for Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, the Spanish giants are still a long way off league leaders FC Barcelona, and are now just one point behind third-placed Valencia with a game in hand.
