Cristiano Ronaldo bagged himself today as Real Madrid routed Sporting Gijon 5-1.
But the Portuguese marred his performance with a silly act of petulance, which should have seen him sent off.
After losing out in a simple 50-50 shoulder challenge, Ronaldo wildly kicked out at his Sporting opponent, kicking him in the back of the leg.
Amazingly, not only did Ronaldo escape a red card – he wasn’t even booked.
Vergonzoso lo de Cristiano Ronaldo. Patada intencional a su rival. Le perdonaron la roja. pic.twitter.com/AzmxGvmhoj
