Gasperini: What I Told Ronaldo After Late Goal

Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini has revealed what he told Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese scored a late equaliser against his side in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Italian club was moments away from taking all three points against the Red Devils after Duvan Zapata's second-half strike appeared enough for Gasperini's side.

Ronaldo, however, had other plans as he secured a draw for the English giants with an excellently struck volley from the edge of the box, a goal that earned him a brace and his team a point.

Following the final whistle, Atalanta's manager was seen engaging with the 36-year-old forward, whom he went up against in Serie A on a number of occasions during Ronaldo's three-year spell at Juventus.

Speaking in a post-match press conference, Gasperini revealed that he had jokingly told the ex-Bianconeri forward to "go to hell" after his late heroics for United.

"At the end of the match, I spoke with Ronaldo," the 63-year-old said, according to the Express.

"He's an incredible player, some even call him a problem. That's a nice problem to have. Nine out of 10 times his shots on target, five of them are goals.
