Ronaldo asked for Morata’s goal to be annulled

It wasn’t easy for Real Madrid to secure the win in Sunday’s match against Athletic Bilbao but they managed it in the end. The final result was 2:1 for Madrid team. They won with goals from Karim Benzema and Alvaro Morata. The only goal for Basque team was an act of Sabin Merino. After their latest win, Real Madrid is back at the top of the table.

Madrid won with a late one that came in the 83rd minute from Alvaro Morata. Despite the fact that Morata is the real hero of this game, this article is not about him.

Three-time Ballon d’Or winner, Real Madrid’s and Portugal’s best player and one of the world’s best players Cristiano Ronaldo managed to be in the spotlight once again. This time from all of the wrong reasons.

When Alvaro Morata scored, what turned out to be the winning goal, Ronaldo turned towards the assistant referee and raised his hand. This gesture is something that players do when they want to signal for the offside position. Of course in this kind of situation Bilbao defenders should be the ones that signal for offside, not their opponents player. Ronaldo is raising his hand in the air in this manner often when his teammates score goals, but this time it definitely looked like he wanted for Morata’s goal to be canceled.

We are all aware of the fact that Portuguese is one of the World’s most selfish players, considered to be so by many fans and pundits, but this would really be crossing the line. This kind of behavior would be unacceptable for his teammates and fans both of Madrid’s and football fans in general.

Reasons, why we want to believe in this story, is when we saw another confirmation of his selfishness that came just minutes later when he decided to shoot on the goal while two of his teammates were in better position.
