Bernebeu goal machine set to ask for exit?
Ronaldo: I’m unhappy at Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo has publicly revealed he is unhappy at Real Madrid due to a mystery “professional issue.”
Ronaldo scored his 150th goal in 149 games for Madrid in a 3-0 win over Granada on Sunday evening but pointedly refused to properly celebrate at the Bernabeu.
When quizzed by journalists in the mixed zone following the Liga game, Ronaldo sparked speculation over his future by revealing he is not content with life at the Spanish champions.
“I’m sad because of a professional issue and the club know why,” Ronaldo said. “That’s why I didn’t celebrate the goals, because I’m not happy. The people [at the club] know why.
“It’s nothing to do with Andres Iniesta [winning UEFA's Best Player in Europe award]. I won’t talk about this anymore and I will concentrate on Portugal for now. There are more important things [than this].
“The people at the club know about this. I cannot say any more.”
It is also reported that Ronaldo was spotted crying in the Madrid dressing room following the victory over Granada.
So what could be the problem here?
Those who witnessed Cristiano Ronaldo’s subdued goal celebrations may have been forgiven for thinking that the Real Madrid man has just become bored of hitting the back of the net, It must take a certain amount of energy to be excited about yet another goal, but apparently there is more to this than meets the eye.
Various stories of this type occurred during the former Man United’s first two seasons at the Bernabeu but that was generally seen as a sign of his disappointment at seeing Real Madrid once again pipped to the post by Barcelona, but given that Jose Mourinho guided his side to a La Liga title last term it seems harder to see what the issue is.
Could the professional issue relate to wage demands? Transfer policy? Someone messing with his hair gel?
