Fans can be really harsh at times, especially towards the opposition player. But in these times the character of a sportsperson is put to test. The way the sportsperson reacts to these situations make headlines. This time around, Cristiano Ronaldo made the headlines for the wrong reasons.
After Juventus’ loss to Atletico Madrid by 2-0, the latter’s fans tried to rile up the 34-year-old and succeeded. The Juventus forward was seen trolling Atletico fans by signalling that he has five UEFA Champions League title wins to his name and their team has not won one.
Here’s the video that has been doing rounds on Twitter:

Juventus have a mountain to climb when they face Atletico Madrid at home in second leg of round of 16. The Italian giant’s worries don’t seem to end as their star forward has scored just 1 goal in 479 Champions League minutes this season.
