Cristiano Ronaldo Once Upset Fernando Torres With An Infuriating Gesture And Sparked A Fight
Cristiano Ronaldo once rattled Fernando Torres so badly, the pair nearly came to blows in the middle of a game.
Torres was never known for being a hothead forward in his time, but tensions flared up when Atletico Madrid entertained bitter rivals Real in 2017.
In a tension-filled Champions League semi-final clash, Real were leading 4-2 on aggregate thanks to Isco.
Ronaldo responded by 'shushing' the home end and boyhood Atletico fan Torres gave him a shove.
The furious Spaniard reportedly shouted: "What are you doing?"
Ronaldo laughed as Torres got in his face but looked to react angrily after being called a 'clown.'
But instead, he rubbed Madrid's victory in the World Cup winner's face and told him to 'go home.'
Torres got the last word in however and remarked Ronaldo was a 'son of a b**ch.'
