Djukic slams ‘ugly & arrogant’ Ronaldo

Miroslav Djukic has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo for his ‘ugly and arrogant act of desperation’ on Edimar during Cordoba’s visit of Real Madrid last week.

The Portuguese was handed a two-match ban for kicking out at the left-back towards the end of the capital giants’ 2-1 win at Nuevo Arcangel, and Los Califas’ Coach believes it was no more than the forward deserved.

“[Ronaldo’s kick on Edimar] was an act of desperation, [which led to the] gesture to his badge, which was ugly and arrogant,” he said ahead of Cordoba’s trip to Celta Vigo on Saturday.

“He shouldn’t have done it because it’s not typical [behaviour] from the best players in the world, both of whom are him and Messi.

“We closed him down well. He wasn’t feeling good, hence the desperation which led him [to do what he did].

“[Real Madrid] are the best team in the world right now. When you’re a small club, you always dream of beating a big club like Real Madrid.”
