Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo said he will not speak with the media again until the end of the season, according to SkySports.
Real defeated Schalke 04 on aggregate on Tuesday, edging them in the Champions League round-of-16 despite falling 4-3 in the second leg. It was after the second leg match that Ronaldo made his statement.
In La Liga play this month, Real Madrid drew with Villareal on March 1 before losing to Athletic Bilbao 1-0 on March 7.
The recent slide has dropped Real Madrid to second place in La Liga, one point below Barcelona. Real Madrid advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League with the aggregate win over Schalke.
During Tuesday's match, Ronaldo set a record for goals in European club competitions and tied Lionel Messi with his 75th career Champions League goal.
