Cristiano Ronaldo blasts 'unintelligent' reporter

The Portuguese attacker had little patience for one journalist’s line of questioning following his side’s 4-0 humiliation to Atletico Madrid on Saturday

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo showed his frustration following Saturday’s 4-0 derby thrashing from city rivals Atletico by blasting a reporter for what he perceived as an ‘unintelligent’ line of questioning.

Liga leaders Real suffered their worst defeat since a 5-0 drubbing from Barcelona at Camp Nou in 2010 in what coach Carlo Ancelotti labelled the darkest day of his time in charge of the 10-time European champions.

And Ronaldo was visibly miffed shortly after the game when one reporter asked him to clear up what he meant when he motioned to his Club World Cup-winning badge on his shirt following his sending off against Cordoba on January 24.

“Do you want to talk about what happened today or about Cordoba, that was three months [sic] ago now,” he said.

“What do you want me to say? If you were an intelligent journalist you’d ask me questions about today’s game.

“You are not intelligent. Sorry.”

Real Madrid will see their lead at the top of La Liga cut to one point if Barcelona can prevail against Athletic Bilbao at San Memes on Sunday.
