Cristiano Ronaldo is rich, handsome and a great player, and he wants you to know it.
After a 1-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday, Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo uttered an arrogant comment in a post-game interview regarding the frequent booing from Dinamo fans and whistles blown by referees.
'Some referees allow them to give me stick like (the Dinamo players) did today. I think it's because I'm rich, handsome and a great player, he said. They envy me - there's no other explanation.
Forward Cristiano Ronaldo was fouled four times and criticized referee Oddvar Moen for not blowing the whistle after a tackle from Jerko Leko resulted in a bloody ankle.
The refs say they protect the talented players. When I play, nobody protects me. Others, you can't touch them, but me, you can hit me with a stick. I don't get it.
Cristiano Ronaldo is now facing a fine and possible suspension from the UEFA for negative comments made about the officials, according to the New York Daily News.
We are very happy with the three points we took, but I'm not so satisfied with the refereeing, Ronaldo said.
