Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo refused to comment on the feat of breaking his own UEFA Champions League record, instead slammed the media for misinterpreting his words after he scored twice to set yet another record in Tuesday’s 6-0 UCL win against APOEL Nicosia.
Ronaldo’s brace against the Israeli side took his goals tally to 18 Champions League goals in 2017, the highest in the competition calendar year and also to 100 goals with Madrid in UEFA competitions.
The 32-year-old was upset at how his comments about Madrid’s weakened squad (made after early November’s 3-1 defeat at Tottenham) led to a public disagreement with club captain, Sergio Ramos.
“I’m not talking, as when I talk I’m not understood,” Ronaldo said without stopping in the stadium mixed zone.
“And then you [media] talk about something I did not say,” Ronaldo said.
