Forget the Ballon D’or, Ronnie couldn’t hit a barn door if he carries on like this.
He may have scored 152 goals in 152 games for Real Madrid but Cristiano Ronaldo made a complete hash of this open goal in last night’s match against Rayo Vallecano. CR7 has wowed fans with some unbelievable strikes in his career but he proved he was human with this shocking miss.
With the goal gaping and Madrid already two goals to the good, Ronaldo only had to slot the ball home after Gonzalo Higuain had done all the hard work. But whether it was the despairing lunge from the defender, the increase in Spanish tax or that he had a hair out of place, something made the 27-year-old scoop his shot on to the post.
This is going to do nothing for the Portuguese star’s mood after recent reports that he was ‘sad’ at Madrid. Ronaldo did get plenty of warm applause from manager Jose Mourinho though which is very strange and presumably very sarcastic. Either that or Ronaldo’s morale is so low he needs clapping every time he touches the ball.
