30.11.2011» Cristiano Ronaldo argued with Cerezo (Atletico Madrid's president)
Cristiano Ronaldo and Atletico Madrid's president, Enrique Cerezo, exchanged a few words this last Monday, still on the aftermath of the Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid derby, that took place this last weekend. Both were given seats at the same table, in "As.com" gala/ceremony awards and they didn't hold back their thoughts on the game held in the Santiago Bernabéu, just a few days ago. You can watch Juventus live stream, the "Cuatro" video recording the entire incident, right below:
Cristiano Ronaldo vs Enrique Cerezo (Atletico Madrid president):
It all started with Enrique Cerezo arriving late, greeting 2 persons that were seated next to him and then waving at a few others in front. Cristiano Ronaldo, who was already seated, was intentionally and rudely ignored by Cerezo, as the first of several disrespectful attitudes that the Atletico Madrid president had. A few instants later, Cristiano Ronaldo, who was already visibly disturbed, asked Cerezo if there have been any sort of rewards for all those hard and violent tackles that we've seen in the Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid derby, played this last Saturday.
Cerezo fired back and stated that Real Madrid players have also been tackling hard lately. One of the Merengues vice-president, Fernando Fernandéz Tapias, who was seated next to Ronaldo, joined the discussion by denying that Real Madrid players play violently. Cerezo ignored him and started stating a few Real Madrid players names, mentioning the likes of Pepe, Ricardo Carvalho, Sergio Ramos and curiously Marcelo, who he pretended to have forgotten the name and was describing as "that short guy with a lot of hair", just before being remembered the name, by a woman who was listening to everything near the table.
While Cerezo kept dissing and mocking Real Madrid players, Ronaldo stood quiet for a few seconds as he witnessed such lack of respect. The Portuguese player would then intervein to defend his teammates, while waving his head in disagreement. Cristiano Ronaldo: "You are talking about some of the best players in the World...", replied CR7, in a discussion captured by a Spanish TV network called "Cuatro".
This Tuesday, Real Madrid also published a medical report, where the club outlined that Cristiano Ronaldo has suffered an injury, more precisely, a "level 1" sprained ankle, even though there was no date disclosed regarding CR7's return to training and his availability for this Saturday's game, Sporting Gijon vs Real Madrid for "La Liga". There was also a mention to the hard tackle that Ronaldo was victim of, still during the 1st half, in a violent foul from Atletico Madrid's defender, Perea. The Portuguese player would remain on the pitch at that time and ended the game limping, after twisting his left ankle for a second time in the 2nd half, this time without anyone's intervention.
Real Madrid next agended match is against Sporting Gijon, for "La Liga", on the 3rd of December, 2011.
