Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial reaction after Genoa win last weekend has been explained. Although the Portuguese superstar didn’t seem too happy after failing to get on the scoresheet he didn’t vent his anger on anybody.
The Bianconeri comfortably saw off Genoa at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday, claiming a well-deserved 3-1 victory. However, their talisman couldn’t extend his Serie A goal tally this time despite getting a number of opportunities to do so.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s left-footed strike missed the target inside the opening 15 minutes of the match. About ten minutes later, he struck the post from a couple of yards out, which lead to Alvaro Morata tapping the rebound into the net. The 36-year-old further took a few more shots but they were either tame efforts or misguided.
Following his misfortunes on the outing, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner appeared to be frustrated as he threw his jersey away near the opponents’ goal while walking off the pitch shaking his head in discontentment. The Jersey was promptly picked up by a ball boy.
This Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial reaction after Genoa win has made headlines. But a few reports have claimed that Ronaldo hadn’t thrown his jersey out of frustration, rather he threw it at the ball boy who had asked for his shirt.
In a post-match conference, Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo said the following: “It’s normal he wanted to score a goal, especially when the game was getting complicated, as he is a champion and always wants to make his mark,” the rookie manager said via Football Italia.
