Cristiano Ronaldo had something of a hissy fit when he was forced to leave an interview after one of the Real Madrid forward’s media advisor prevented him from answering a question about teammate Sergio Ramos.
It is reported by Goal.com that Ronaldo had been questioned about the future of Ramos, with speculation rife he could join Manchester United this summer, before a press officer interrupted and requested the interview was closed.
Ronaldo, however, did not respond kindly to this behaviour and accused said advisor of making him ‘look stupid’ with the Portuguese seemingly having been prepared to answer the question put to him.

Ronaldo said: “I am not insisting on anything, he is making me leave... Do you want me to be unfriendly with this guy?"
"You two are the ones who need to do this, man. This is making me look stupid in front of people."
While this swift action may have angered Ronaldo, perhaps it was indeed for the best that he was not able to express his opinion on the Ramos situation having previously spoken against Florentino Perez’s controversial decisions.
Two summers ago Perez sold Mesut Ozil to Arsenal and, 12 months later, Angel di Maria was allowed to move to Manchester United. These were two players Ronaldo held in high regard, and he struggled to grasp their respective departures.
Ramos, meanwhile, would seem set to be the latest established Real Madrid player close to leaving the Santiago Bernabeu, with a breakdown in relations with Perez indicated as the main reason for his potential exit.
Ronaldo would surely be averse to seeing yet another of his colleagues leave Real Madrid and, seemingly of the opinion he is bigger than the club, would not have been afraid of expressing his annoyance were he afforded the chance to do so.
Manchester United, meanwhile, have been credited with a bid of £28.6 million as Louis van Gaal looks to take advantage of the Ramos situation and bring the experienced Spanish centre-back to Old Trafford.
