Cristiano Ronaldo mocks James Rodriguez after police car chase

Football News

Footballers can always trust their teammates to make light of a serious situation.

It was reported last week by the Mirror that James Rodriguez was involved in a 200mph ‘high-speed pursuit’ with an undercover police officer while he was on his way to training.

James could face charges of failing to stop and speeding, but Ronaldo still couldn’t resist the chance to mock his teammate as Real Madrid trained ahead of Sunday night’s 2-2 draw with Valencia. (Scroll down this page to see the video).

Ronaldo can be seen making a steering wheel gesture - but it’s unclear whether James saw the funny side.

After failing to amuse his teammate, Ronaldo is seen speaking to the Colombia international and holds up his finger - not the middle one - on several occasions in quick succession.

James failed to see the funny side

The Mirror ponder whether Ronaldo was saying he’s No. 1 at Real Madrid and he’ll subsequently say what he likes, or if he was pleading it was the first time that day he’d made reference to the incident.

Either way, it was a little insensitive of Ronaldo if James is genuinely concerned. One can only imagine how Ronaldo would have reacted were the roles reversed.

Real Madrid facing uphill battle to win title

In order to win the Spanish league title this season, it’s imperative everyone at the Bernabeu sticks together.

Speculation is rife that Rafael Benitez has already lost the dressing room and will be relieved of his duties over the coming weeks, with Jose Mourinho waiting in the wings.

Los Blancos currently find themselves third in the Primera Division table, four points behind Atletico Madrid and two behind Barcelona who have a game in hand following their participation at the FIFA Club World Cup last month.

Was Cristiano Ronaldo’s banter acceptable - or did he cross the line on this occasion? Let us know by leaving a comment in the box below.
