Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva & the MVP award

Man City midfielder Bernardo Silva was named the MVP of the Nations League after the final.

When the announcement was made, Silva was surrounded by his team-mates.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo was standing right next to Silva.

Many have since suggested that Ronaldo reacted badly to not winning the MVP award.

It’s true that Ronaldo didn’t immediately congratulate the Man City star, along with many of the Portugal players.

However, cropped video of the incident, which is spreading on social media, failed to show the whole interaction.

In extended footage of what happened, Ronaldo clearly patted Silva on the head to celebrate his individual prize.

So is Ronaldo being unfairly criticised?
