thumbnail Hello,

The Real Madrid superstar was infuriated by a question from reporters about his lack of goals away from home since November and decided to leave early in disgust


GOALEXTRA TIME
We've all rolled our eyes now and then at an interview question in football but, when you're Cristiano Ronaldo, you probably ought to know what to expect by now.

The Real Madrid forward has failed to score away from home since putting one past Eibar in La Liga on November 29. While the Spanish giants have had a winter break between now and then, it still makes four games on the road without scoring for the Portuguese.

When your tally at home for the season (21 goals) nearly doubles that in away games (11), people are bound to talk - but Cristiano quite clearly did not want to hear it!

Asked why the goals on his travels had dried up, Ronaldo angrily challenged the journalist in question as to how much recent form meant in context of his wider achievements and doubled down on his disdain by making his exit even while his adversary attempted to follow up.

He growled: "Why have I struggled to score away from home? Can you name one player who has scored more away from home than me since I've been in Spain?

"No, you can't; there aren't any. Bye everyone."

Of course, the reporters at the press conference should have known that Ronaldo would be cranky; it's been over a year since he won any Ballons d'Or.
