Video: Some fans blast Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘shameless’ dive to win penalty for Juventus vs Genoa

Some fans have slammed Cristiano Ronaldo for a ‘shameless’ dive to win a game-winning penalty for Juventus in their Serie A clash against Genoa tonight.

In the final moments of Juventus’ Serie A clash with Genoa this evening, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo used his trademark silky stepovers before being brought down by forward Antonio Sanabria.

Check out Ronaldo converting the last-gasp spot-kick here.

Take a look at the incident below:

Here’s how some football fans reacted to the decision to award a penalty:

Claims that this is possibly a dive could just be a way for some of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s critics to try and throw some shade onto his name.

Until further camera angles are introduced we won’t know for sure if this was a dive by the Portuguese superstar or not.

What are your thoughts on the situation?
