Atleti Chief Responds To Ronaldo's Taunts

Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s taunts in Juventus’ loss to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, the Spanish club’s president has responded to the superstar’s gestures.

What Annoyed Ronaldo Said After 2-0 Defeat To Atletico

The Portuguese was left frustrated as the Bianconeri suffered a 2-0 defeat to Atletico in the first leg of the round of 16 on Wednesday night.

In response to jeers from fans at the Wanda Metropolitano, the former Real Madrid man held up five fingers, which is believed to be in reference to him having won the competition on five occasions.

After the game, Ronaldo was at it again, when he walked through the mixed zone of journalists showing the same hand signals and reportedly said: "I have five Champions League and Atletico has zero. I have five, Atletico zero," according to ESPN.

Enrique Cerezo, the president of Los Rojiblancos, has now hit back at the 34-year-old, claiming the two Champions League finals he won against Atletico were not really because of his influence.

"A small clarification is that Cristiano Ronaldo has not won five Champions Leagues at all, but only three," he told Radio CRC.

"The remaining two against Atletico, he did not really win them. Who won those two finals? I will tell you in the next interview."

Despite his remarks, Cerezo insisted he was not offended by Ronaldo’s actions.

"It was a great match, despite the result being a little tight," he added. 

"His gesture was due to a moment of great tension, I understand and do not condemn him."
