Cristiano Ronaldo was always going to be the favourite to score Juventus’ 5000th Serie A goal - and he didn’t disappoint.

The Portuguese forward converted from the penalty spot in the 70th minute against Torino as the Old Lady remained unbeaten in the Italian top flight.

It wasn’t Ronaldo’s landmark goal that sparked headlines, though, but his reaction to it.

Straight after lashing the ball past Salvador Ichazo in the Torino goal, Ronaldo ran towards the goalkeeper and seemed to deliberately bump into him.

It wasn’t a very professional gesture from the 33-year-old and even Mario Balotelli wasn’t impressed.

The Nice striker wrote on his Instagram story: “If I had done it, byeeeeeee!”

Yet a new video has emerged showing that Ronaldo understood his actions were uncalled for.

Ronaldo apologised to Ichazo 

He approached Ichazo and placed a hand on his face. According to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, it was a clear apology.

Fair play, Ronnie.


His goal helped Juventus to a 1-0 win and Juve are now 11 points ahead at the top of Serie A.

The Ronaldo signing is working wonders for the Bianconeri must a break now awaits the Portugal international.

"Ronaldo is a great professional," Allegri told reporters after the win against Torino, per Goal. "He truly cares about details. That's why he is always fit.

"But I already told him that he will miss one of the next games against Roma, Atalanta or Sampdoria."


With such a commanding lead in the top flight, Juventus can already start tailoring Ronaldo’s minutes to ensure he is at his best for the knockout stage of the Champions League.

It’s why Juventus paid £99.2 million to sign him; to deliver a European trophy.

Not since 1996 have Juve won Europe’s premier club competition but there’s every chance that Ronaldo can help end that wait.

Should that happen, he will join Clarence Seedorf as the only players to have won the competition with three different clubs.

The Italian giants finished first in Group H and will find out their round-of-16 opponents on Monday.
