Arrogant Cristiano Ronaldo censors media after silencing Euro 2016 critics

Posted by

Cristiano Ronaldo silenced many doubters with his two-goal performance for Portugal against Hungary to secure a spot in the Euro 2016 knockout round, but he also silenced the media and would not allow

According to Associated Press reporter Rob Harris on Twitter, prior to Ronaldo coming into the media room for his post-game presser, the media were informed by a UEFA official that the press would not be allowed to ask questions and only the official would ask them.

Ronaldo’s actions led to a little bit of banter from ESPN FC writer Iain Macintosh.

Prior to the game against Hungary, Ronaldo had failed to score in either of Portugal’s previous two games – most notably missing a penalty kick that smashed against the goalpost. But after his performance against Hungary, he probably had the right to feel arrogant.

Earlier in the day Ronaldo was caught on camera throwing a microphone into a nearby lake as the team walked together.
