Cristiano Ronaldo snaps at reporter after record-breaking night in Sweden

Published Add your comment

Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a record-breaking night in Real Madrid's 2-0 Champions League win over Malmo yesterday.

The Portuguese superstar scored a brace, taking his career goals tally past the 500 mark and equalling Raul's Los Blancos record in the process.

The 30-year-old chose the historic night to end his media blackout but was irritated by a question from a reporter - leaving the former Manchester United man to question the journalist's intelligence.

The man in question asked the Portugal captain a question about Gerard Pique's comments during Barcelona's treble-winning celebrations last season.

The Spaniard thanked singer Kevin Roldan after pictures emerged of the musician with Ronaldo - celebrating his 30th birthday - the day after Madrid's 4-0 defeat to Atletico in February.

Last night, Ronaldo snapped, as per the Mirror: "You know why I don't speak more often? You're intelligent... you must be to have this job. It's because the questions aren't good!

"What has that got to do with today's game? Can't you talk about the good things that have happened? This is why I don't speak more. You want me to fall into the same trap as Pique."

Evidently the reporter was trying to entice a reaction from Ronaldo, but the Los Blancos star was in no mood to entertain the remarks.

On a night where the Portuguese was celebrating an unbelievable milestone in his career, it was understandable why he was less than impressed with the irrelevant question. 

He will have the opportunity to write himself into Real Madrid history by surpassing Raul's 323 goal tally during the Madrid derby on Sunday.

The number seven has scored 10 goals in 16 matches against the Rojiblancos - a record that could be considered below par for a player like Ronaldo.
