Cristiano Ronaldo did little to hide his emotional disgust in-front of the media after Manchester United stunned Juventus at Turin. The Portuguese seemed to have kick start his UEFA Champion’s league party after netting his first continental goal for the Old Lady, but the Red Devils scored twice late on in the game to grab all headlines.
The defeat meant the Turin based club will have to wait for their next game against Valencia to seal passage into the knockout stages of the European topflight competition.
“United did nothing to win the game,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports Italia. “We dominated for 90 minutes, had so many chances, could have killed it off three or four times, but we relaxed and were punished. “You can’t even talk about luck, because you have to find your own luck and in this case we just gifted it to them. “Now we’ve got to lift our heads, as we played really well and are still top of the group.”
Ronaldo continued by talking about the UEFA champion’s league and its ups and down
“The Champions League is a special competition, where you could be winning, but you can’t relax, as anything can happen,” continued Ronaldo, who has won the competition four times Real Madrid and once with United.
It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee.
“I was happy with the goal, but I’m a little bit disappointed because we should win the game with three or four goals.” “We are top of the group, we’re a good team, but it’s a long way for the final. These people, the club, they dream of winning the Champions League, but we have to take it step by step.”
