Was Cristiano Ronaldo jeered after missing shot in Real Madrid win?

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo isn't having the best of times at Real Madrid of late - and now it seems as though he's being jeered by own fans.

The Portuguese superstar came in for criticism for his petulant reaction after Alvaro Arbeloa pinched a goal from him in the 3-0 win against Almeria last night, after replays showed him angrily booting the ball into the net before walking away from the team celebrations shaking his head.


It seems as though his night went from bad to worse however after he took a wild shot on goal in the hope of adding to his tally of 39 for the season.

Fans at the Bernabeu appeared to jeer and whistle the former Manchester United ace as the shot flew high and wide. Team-mate Gareth Bale has been subjected to similar treatment in recent months amidst reports that he could be on his way back to the Premier League. 

The Welshman was also voted in a recent poll as the player fans most wanted to see dropped in favour of either Isco or James Rodriguez, and according to reports Manchester United are keen on securing his signature.

Despite his problems on the pitch, Ronaldo is still having a season to remember and has managed to score one more than Messi this term - a fact which may have been behind his frustrations at Arbeloa scoring and his wild shot on target.


Cristiano Ronaldo has had a strange season to date. His numbers are as impressive as ever but his goals have come in fits and spurts while his recent refusal to celebrate with Javier Hernandez after the Manchester United striker's winner in the Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid have added to his image as a self-centred diva.

If he can help deliver trophies to the Bernabeu then his detractors will fall silent once more - however Madrid are running out of time in the league and both Bayern and Barcelona are in better form in Europe - and that's before they take on Juventus in the semis.

Will Ronaldo still be one of the best players in the world by the end of next season?
