Cristiano Ronaldo mocks FIFA president with goal celebration

Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly hit back at FIFA President Sepp Blatter once more last night as he celebrated scoring against Sevilla with a mock army salute.

The Portuguese superstar had previously used Facebook to lash out at claims made by Blatter that he was the type of player who spends 'more at the hairdresser' than Lionel Messi.

The 77-year-old then added that while Messi was a 'good boy', Ronaldo was more of a "commander on the pitch", before he stood up and bizarrely mimed an army trumpeter. 

Ronaldo posted the video of Blatter making his remarks at the Oxford Union earlier this week with a message stating: "This video shows clearly the respect and consideration that FIFA has for me, for my club and my country."

Blatter took to Twitter to apologise for his remarks but that seemingly wasn't enough for Ronaldo, who offered his response on the pitch against Sevilla last night.

The ex-Manchester United star hit a hat-trick - outdoing Gareth Bale, who got a brace, in the process - as Madrid earned a crazy 7-3 win.

After scoring his first from the spot, he wheeled away in celebration before standing and offering a military salute.

Evidently Ronaldo is still unhappy with Blatter and there is little the FIFA president can do about it. Maybe they should just kiss and make up?
