Ronaldo Causes Stir After Juve Match

The reason why Cristiano Ronaldo threw his shirt to the ground following Juventus' Serie A win over Genoa on the weekend has reportedly been revealed.

Click through the gallery above to see some images of Ronaldo throwing his shirt to the floor after Juve's latest match.

The Bianconeri claimed all three points after their 3-1 victory on Sunday, a result that took them to third on the table, one point behind second-placed AC Milan and 12 points behind leaders Inter Milan.

After the match, Ronaldo was seen throwing his match jersey to the ground in what many perceived as an act of frustration that came after he did not score in the game.

It even led to manager Andrea Pirlo saying that it is "normal he wanted to score a goal, especially seeing that the match had turned out in a certain way. It is part of the attitude of champions who always want to leave their mark."

Ronaldo, however, was reportedly not getting rid of his jersey in anger, but was rather leaving it for a certain ball boy, who collected it once the Portuguese superstar had left the scene.

According to Goal, the 36-year-old left his shirt for the young boy as a gift, an action that comes just a week after comments from Atalanta's Robin Gosens on Ronaldo refusing to give him his jersey surfaced.

Many perhaps believed the former Real Madrid man had taken off his shirt in frustration due to a controversial moment while on international duty with Portugal recently.

After a goal of his was disallowed during a 2-2 draw with Serbia in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier, Ronaldo threw his captain's armband to the floor and left the field before the match ended.

How Barca Could Line Up With Four Free Signings

The ex-Manchester United superstar has scored 32 goals and assisted a further four strikes in 37 games for Juventus so far this season.
