During a Champions League match last season, extraordinary footage emerged of an enraged Cristiano Ronaldo ranting at his Juventus teammates.
During his side’s last 16 match against Porto, the Portugal international lost his rag while returning to the dressing room at halftime.
Despite being heavy favorites to advance to the quarterfinals, Juventus lost 2-1 in the first leg and trailed 1-0 at halftime in the second.
Ronaldo was furious, and he vented his frustrations to his teammates during an explosive half-time rant.
“It’s time for us to put in more effort.” What the hell are you talking about? We didn’t engage in any form of play. “Nothing,” grumbled the former Real Madrid player.

Juan Cuadrado retorted, “Don’t worry.”
“We s***ed,” Ronaldo says. “Perfectly!”
“You have to be a role model for everyone,” Cuadrado said.
Ronaldo said, “I’m included as well.” “We have to be honest with eаch other, we’ve been plаying s***.” We need to hаve some personаlity in this Chаmpions Leаgue mаtch.”
Andreа Pirlo, the mаnаger of Juventus, then enters the room to cаlm things down.
“All right, thаt’s it; let’s get going.” Cri, thаt’s enough. Juаn, thаt’s it.
