Cristiano Ronaldo Refused Shirt Swap 'Because He Was So P***ed Off He Hadn't Scored'

Cristiano Ronaldo refused to swap shirts because he didn't score in Juventus' win over Ferencvaros on November 4.

That's the view of Ferencvaros midfielder Marcel Heister, who played in the 4-1 defeat in Budapest.

Alvaro Morata struck twice in the Champions League win, while a Paulo Dybala strike and Lasha Dvali own goal made it a comfortable away win for the Bianconeri in Group G.

But frustratingly for Ronaldo, he was not able to add to his goals tally in the fixture and according to Heister, he was not in the mood to swap shirts post-match.

"He seemed to me to be a bit p***ed off and angry," Heister told Goal.com.

"He just waved off disparagingly when asked about [swapping] his shirt. Maybe it's because he didn't score a goal against us.

"Or maybe because I took the ball from him when he tried to dribble.

"There was a photograph of it, I posted it on Instagram. It was the most beautiful experience of my life!"

Ronaldo was playing in just his second game back since contracting COVID-19 while on national team duty and hit headlines for showing a lack of work-rate in the latter stages of the match.

Jokingly titled 'The King Of Cristiano Ronaldo - The King Of Pressing', a video saw two instances of Ronaldo not pulling his weight.

The first was him walking as the unchallenged opposition defender played a pass in the 82nd minute and the second, in stoppage time, was much worse.

Ronaldo was the one who lost the ball after being outmuscled by a defender near the by-line and with the opponent just yards in front of them, he simply stood and watched.

Remarkably, he was still there in an offside position even when possession was turned over and Juventus went on the attack.

Ronaldo and Juventus take on Ferencvaros at the Allianz Stadium tonight as they look to move to nine points in the group stage.
