Just before former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was sent packing, he reacted angrily after the team lost 3-0 to Tottenham.
At a post-match meeting the special one demanded respect from the media reminding anyone who cares to listen that he alone won three premiership titles more the all the 19 premiership managers put together
“I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together,” Mourinho said. “Three for me and two for them” he said while putting up three fingers in the air to buttress his point.
The scenario however played out again Wednesday but this time not with Mourinho but with Juvetus forward and Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo after the Italian giants were defeated 2-0 by Atletico Madrid in the Champions League tie
A wound-up Cristiano Ronaldo continued to taunt Atletico Madrid fans holding up five fingers in the media zone for each of his Champions League titles.
Having been singled out by the Spanish supporters on Wednesday night, the Portuguese responded to taunts by repeatedly performing the gesture, a clear reference to his incredible success in the competition.
And evidently the 34-year-old was still seething after the game as he marched through the Wanda Metropolitano media zone with a scowl on his face.
He refused to speak directly to any journalists but again held up the five-finger gesture and declared: ‘I won five Champions Leagues and these guys none.’
Ronaldo made a zero with his hand as if to drive home the point as he sped away clutching his luxury wash bag under his arm. The former Real Madrid forward was jeered throughout the match at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
Juventus will need to produce a remarkable turnaround in the second leg to reverse the two goal deficit.
Late goals from Uruguayan defenders Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin mean Diego Simeone’s side will be heavy favourites to progress.
Juventus boss Massimilano Allegri however still holds out hope that his men will be able to turn it around.
‘We were not dead after the 3-0 home defeat against Madrid last season and we are not dead now,’ Allegri told UEFA.com.
‘We have to forget this defeat quickly and try to play better in Turin because against a team like Atletico you miss a pass and you are in trouble.
