It’s hard to imagine a man who has scored 404 goals in 393 appearances could be booed for having one or two bad games.
This is a footballer who has won the Ballon d’Or four times and guided their club to two La Ligas, two Copa del Reys and two Champions Leagues.
Should he miss a couple of chances, take a few bad touches and misplace a number of passes, Ronaldo finds himself the victim of whistles and boos from his own fans.
Speaking on La Sexta show ‘Jugones’, Ronaldo hit back: “I have a lot of patience, but I don’t like it. I can not say it’s normal, I do not like it.”
“Being criticised in my stadium isn’t normal and when I give one hundred percent and things do not come out, they are whistling.
“I need the extra support from outside and sometimes we do not have it.
“In Manchester it never happened to me, as the mentality is different. I am delighted in Spain but I have Manchester in my memory [as well].
Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final, Ronaldo added that he and his teammates are taking nothing for granted.
“If you think you are the best, it doesn’t mean that you don’t possess humility,” said Ronaldo. “Real Madrid are always favourites, but we have to prove it by trying to be better than them on the pitch.”
