Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is used to making the headlines for his own scoring feats, but with a lower goal return so far this season compared to his usual standards, he is taking the spotlight for another reason, as he is said to be 'very angry' with teammate Isco after he failed to show gratitude to him for assisting his goal against Las Palmas.
Real Madrid cruised to a 3-0 victory over Las Palmas at the Bernabeu on Sunday, where Ronaldo set up Isco for Madrid's third goal in the 74th minute, securing three vital points to keep within touching distance of league leaders Barcelona.
Isco met Ronaldo's cross to convert from close range, and upon netting his goal on Sunday - his fifth of the season - the Spaniard pointed to they sky with his two fingers whilst his teammates congregated to heap praise on both Ronaldo and Isco.
The 25-year-old was then seen to have approached Ronaldo to thank him as they shared a handshake, but according to a report on Onda Cero programme El Transistor, via the Mirror, the Portugal international was already angry and upset with his teammate for not immediately thanking him for his assist.
Lol Ronaldo's reaction after the cross for Isco. What an embarrassment. How can people support someone with an attitude like that...— Veron (@MesmericMessi) November 5, 2017
The Los Blancos captain, Sergio Ramos, spoke about Ronaldo at the conclusion of the match and admitted he was upset, but refused to mention if it was due to the incident following Isco's goal.
He told Movistar Partidazo: "Cristiano goes home upset when he doesn't score, but he does make a difference.
"Cristiano and Karim [Benzema] will score goals soon enough. We do not worry if they have only scored a few goals because they both make a difference and what matters is winning."
Ronaldo has scored just one league goal so far this season, with his other six goals all coming in the Champions League.
