Spanish newspaper, Sport, have been heavily reporting on the supposed “falling-out” between Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo was not happy to be subbed off against Las Palmas this weekend and Real Madrid ended drawing 2-2, putting the French coach in the line of fire.
Cristiano Ronaldo could be seen on the bench cursing Zinedine Zidane after being substituted.
Cristiano said “your f***ing mother” [su puta madre – can also mean “F*** you”], referring to Zidane. Not just that but he also said “Foda-se”, a Portuguese expression somewhere between “f*** yourself” and “for f***’s sake”.
Dressing room conversation revealed
Sport also reported on the conversation which reportedly took place between the pair in the Real Madrid dressing room after the game.
“I’m disappointed in you,” said Ronaldo to his coach. Zidane tried to calm the situation. “Calm down Cris, you needed to rest, you will play 90 minutes against Dortmund.”
A cold silence broke out which Sergio Ramos decided to break – “You shouldn’t get like this (Cristiano).”
It is worth noting that Sport are a Catalan newspaper and quite obviously have an agenda.
