Cristiano Ronaldo might have been on the wrong side of the result as Atletico Madrid beat his Juventus side in the Champions League – but the five-time Ballon d’Or winner could not resist having the final word.
Diego Simeone’s side overcame the two-time European champions 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano through goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin on a night dominated by controversy surrounding the Video Assistant Referee [VAR].
Ronaldo was making his first return to the Spanish capital since his summer move from Real Madrid to Turin.
And though Juve were overwhelmed, the Portugal international did not want to leave Madrid with anyone under any illusions as to his brilliance.
Walking through the mixed zone after the game he barked: “I have five Champions Leagues, you [Atletico] have none.”
The 34-year-old won the European Cup with Manchester United in 2008 before scooping it four times with Los Blancos – including twice at the expense of city rivals Atletico in the 2014 and 2016 finals.
