Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure as he walked off the Bernabeu pitch following Real Madrid’s surprise 1-1 draw with Eibar on Sunday.

Zinedine Zidane’s men were expected to record a straightforward victory over their opponents but found themselves 1-0 down in only the sixth minute after Fran Rico struck.

Gareth Bale equalised in the 17th minute, from a Ronaldo cross, but Los Blancos were unable to find the winning goal that would have kept them top of La Liga heading into the international break.

Instead, Real Madrid now find themselves second in the table, behind neighbours Atletico on goal difference.

Ronaldo, who never looks happy when he fails to score, trudged off the pitch muttering various things under his breath.

Lip readers reveal what Ronaldo said

But what was he saying?

While lip readers in Spain have been unable to decipher everything the Portuguese superstar said, they were able to pick out one sentence.

Real Madrid’s expectant supporters made their feelings about the result clear at the final whistle - and it’s fair to say their disappointed reaction failed to impress Ronaldo.

The 31-year-old, per Spanish newspaper AS, is understood to have said: ”¡Qué poca calma!”.

For those who don’t speak Spanish, this roughly translates as “What a lack of patience!”.

Real Madrid fans in being impatient and demanding shocker.

Having been at the Bernabeu since 2009, we’d have thought Cristiano would be used to this by now.


Ronaldo's joint-worst start to a La Liga season

But there’s no doubt that failing to score would have bugged him more than the crowd’s reaction.

With one goal in his first four La Liga appearances, this is now Ronaldo’s joint-worst start to a league season since the 2010-11 campaign.


In fairness to the Portuguese star, though, he missed the first couple of fixtures with the knee injury he suffered during the European Championships and is probably still working his way back to full fitness.

Will this be the first season since 2009-10 that Cristiano Ronaldo fails to score more than 50 goals? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
