Cristiano Ronaldo had a bit of a strop in training after being made to chase shadows by Toni Kroos.
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest ever players in world football and the Real Madrid superstar got to the top of the game by working incredibly hard on his game and fitness.
It’s no surprise that the Santiago Bernabeu’s main man takes training sessions very seriously and his desire to win also makes it no surprise that he can get a bit stroppy – something that new boy Toni Kroos has now learned.
Bayern Munich sold the Germany international to Real Madrid after his World Cup glory in Brazil and it appears he is settling in well at los Blancos ahead of the new season, impressing with his close control and passing.
A ‘piggy in the middle’ training drill with Kroos and Ronaldo has found its way online and gives viewers something to be impressed by and chuckle at in equal measure.
Impressed by Kroos’ almost flawless technique and composure with hardly any space to operate and chuckling at Ronaldo getting a bit of a strop when he, one of those chasing the ball, can’t win it off the German or anyone else.
Watch it here…
As you can see, Ronaldo doesn’t stay annoyed too long and he and Kroos eventually share a little joke, so it’s all smiles at the Champions League winners ahead of the new La Liga season.
