Cristiano Ronaldo loses his cool in Juventus’ 3-1 win over Genoa


Cristiano Ronaldo was angry at his Juventus teammates for not passing the ball to him during the game against Genoa on Sunday. Despite the fact that the Old Lady of Turin won the game by 3-1 in Serie A. 

Ronaldo played the whole 90 minutes but he could not find the back of the net in the game. However, Dejan Kulusevski, Alvaro Morata and Weston McKenniemade their mark. However, he hit the ball on the woodwork on one occasion.

The 36-year-old Portuguese is experiencing one of his least successful seasons in terms of his team’s performances in all competitions. Juventus are out of the UEFA Champions League, also sitting 3rd and 12 points behind the league leader Inter Milan.

However, Ronaldo has done quite well this season. His stats reflect that perfectly, he scored 25 goals in 27 Serie A games. Currently, he is the leading goalscorer in the league 4 goals ahead of the 2nd place Romelu Lukaku. The former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward missed the golden boot last season despite scoring 31 goals.
