Cristiano Ronaldo tries to strangle Brazil’s Marcelo
Why attempted to murder in front of thousands of spectators and the media is not a good idea
Cristiano Ronaldo is a winner at the moment. Be it with Manchester United or individually, he is developing an increasingly trophy-laden mantelpiece. You can imagine then that having little or no impact as Portugal suffered a 6-2 defeat to Brazil did not sit to easily with C-Ron. In fact, he got a bit frustrated.
As you can see above, at one point he grabbed Real Madrid’s Marcelo by the neck. The left-back said: “Ronaldo was out of order and a bigmouth. He elbowed me off the ball, then tried to have a shouting match about it.”
Team-mate Thiago Silva was equally impressed. He said: “He’s a malicious guy and if I hadn’t jumped out of the way he would have broken my leg. He just lost it because we snuffed him totally out of the game. He had the nerve to say he didn’t touch me but that’s only because I got out of the way.”
If you are wondering about just why he was so frustrated, it was things like this!
