Hierro Plays Down Ronaldo Boos

Real Madrid legend, Fernando Hierro, has played down the whistling of Cristiano Ronaldo during last Saturday’s 5-0 La Liga win over Rayo Vallecano at the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo was whistled late in the game for a selfish move rather than passing the ball to unmarked Alvaro Morata. The incident symbolized the disappointment of the Los Blancos’ fans after their recent two consecutive defeats to Barcelona and Sevilla.

The FIFA Ballon d’Or winner was reportedly angered by the booing, given his goal-scoring records this season, but Hierro says no one should ‘dramatize’ such isolated incidents.

“These are normal things and there is no need to be dramatic about it,” the former Real captain said.

“These are the demands of the club, of the best team in history. The demands of Real Madrid are like that.

“We all know the importance of Cristiano, who represents all the values of Madridismo. It was just one move, these things happen in football.”

Hierro has won five La Liga trophies and three Champions League titles during his 14 years at Bernabeu, and believes the fans will again rally behind Ronaldo and the team when they host Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg on Wednesday.

“This stadium has seen the best players in history pass through, and it makes these demands, for better or worse,” Hierro added.

“I hope that on Wednesday they applaud him because he scores two goals. I have no doubt at all that they will applaud him.”
