Cristiano Ronaldo Caught Mocking Goalkeeper As Video Picks Up Their Conversation
Mattia Perin was made to regret trying to psych out Cristiano Ronaldo from the penalty spot at the weekend, with the Juventus forward getting revenge not just by scoring.
Andrea Pirlo's side really needed Ronaldo to step up to the plate on Sunday, as they came close to falling further behind Serie A leaders AC Milan
The defending champions have already drawn five games in the league so far this season, but are unbeaten, and faced Genoa on Sunday.
Paulo Dybala opened the scoring on 57 minutes but the hosts were level through former Juve midfielder Stefano Sturaro just four minutes later.
As the draw loomed large Ronaldo scored twice from the penalty spot late on to secure all three points for the Old Lady, but it was his interaction with goalkeeper Perin which was most interesting, with the Italian actually on loan from Juve.
Perin asked the five time Ballon d'Or winner where he was putting the second spot kick saying, "Central yet?"
After the 35-year-old put it to the keeper's right, with the keeper diving to his left, Ronaldo retorted shouting "Where are you going, Perin?!" during his celebration.

That goal came in the 89th minute but there was still time for the pair to continue their verbal spar late on in the game.
Juventus won a free kick just outside the area which Ronaldo lined up to take, Perin shouted to his defenders to get out of the way and not form a wall, saying, "Get up, get up, no barrier, I want to see the ball."
It looked like the former Real Madrid star would go for a trademark shot from a set piece but instead he took a short pass, with the final whistle going straight after.
Perin wasn't done though, saying, "scary, huh? Why don't you kick without a barrier?" as the game ended.
It was a good week all round for Ronaldo, as he brought up his 100th appearance for the Turin giants, as he outshone 'rival' Lionel Messi in the Champions League last Tuesday, as Juventus beat Barca to top the group.
On Monday the former Manchester United winger was also named, alongside Messi, in the Ballon d'Or 'Dream Team,' made up of all the best players ever.
