Footballers and their absolute love for fitness go hand in hand. Take Cristiano Ronaldo for instance. The Juventus forward leaves no stones unturned when it comes to flaunting his scrumptious physique. But this time around though, he was trolled by one of the players of his former club, Jesse Lingard.
Manchester United recently defeated Juventus in the Champions League when the two sides clashed at the Allianz Stadium in Italy. With no real surprise, it were Juventus who broke the deadlock through Cristiano Ronaldo. Defender Leonardo Bonucci had lobbed the ball forward for the Portuguese and a one-time volley was enough to beat David De Gea at the near post.
The question of doubt was; whether Ronaldo would celebrate? And the Portuguese did. He ran towards the stands and cleverly took his shirt up – so that he won’t get a booking – showing off his toned muscular physique. Although he later apologised to United supporters through a gesture.
His celebration, however, was short-lived as Juan Mata pulled one back with a brilliant free-kick before Bonucci’s own goal gave United an unlikely win away from home.
And as if that was not enough, it seems Ronaldo was beaten off the field too. Trolling Ronaldo over his celebration, Jesse Lingard took to Instagram to show off his chiselled abs and asked his fans, “Who Did It Better? #99#CR @jlingz”
And the fans are absolutely loving it, as one said, “you did .” One gave Lingard a reality check and said, “Wait until you 31 dude…lol.” And keeper David de Gea joined the fray as well and wrote, “You can’t compare! Yours much better .”
