Cristiano Ronaldo humiliated in Real Madrid training by Jese trick

Published 1 Comments

Football News

Cristiano Ronaldo is a man very rarely upstaged in an arena where a football is the key component.

Indeed only arch-nemesis Lionel Messi can claim to be a threat to the Portuguese superstar’s legacy, many would argue only the diminutive Argentine can boast being a better player in the history of football.

Yet whilst seeing Ronaldo upstaged might be a rarity, seeing him made a fool out of is essentially unheard of. Fans might recall now-retired former Exeter City player Scott Hiley nutmeg the Real Madrid forward in an FA Cup tie in 2006, but aside from that watching Ronaldo be the butt of the joke just isn’t the done thing.

Entertaining clip

That’s perhaps why it’s so entertaining to watch footage captured of Real’s pre-season training camp, wherein youngster Jese Rodriguez manages to sit Ronaldo down with an eloquent piece of skill.

Los Blancos are currently preparing for the season head with a camp in Australia, and they’ll face off against the likes of Manchester City, AS Roma, Inter and AC Milan. It would appear from the clip however that Ronaldo still has some shaking off to do before he’s rid of his summer rust.

Ronaldo gaffe

Not only does he go charging in to try and win the ball of Jese, but he also falls over when the Spaniard drags it back and takes off. Not befitting of the current Ballon d’Or holder, we think you’ll agree.

Of course in truth it’s CR7 who can have the last laugh due to the fact he bagged over 60 goals last season across all competitions. The offering, which was a personal best for the ex-United winger, wasn’t enough to win Real either La Liga or a second successive Champions League, but it’s certainly chalked up as another phenomenal season for the Portugal captain.

Jese development

Meanwhile Jese only managed 23 appearances across all competitions last term, finishing with just four goals to his name.

The 22-year-old, commonly lauded for his technical ability and skills in tight spaces, might be able to claim to having left Ronaldo on the seat of his trousers, but he has plenty of work to do yet if he’s to truly laud it over the Real’s favourite son.
