Cristiano Ronaldo’s dream to lift the Champions League trophy at the Santiago Bernabeu in his first year as a Real Madrid player is dead, dead and buried.
Los Blancos could only draw 1-1 against Lyon and they thus lost on aggregate;
Now Cristiano Ronaldo blames Gonzalo Higuain’s ineffectiveness and selfishness during the match.
After the Portuguese superstar opened the score sheet in the early stages of the match, Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain had two glorious opportunities to increase Real Madrid’s lead before the half time whistle was up.
Somehow, the striker horrifically wasted his chances, leaving Los Blancos with more job to do under pressure and anxiety.
What Cristiano Ronaldo is presently mad about especially is the fact that Gonzalo Higuain didn’t pass the ball when he should have done it.
Ronaldo singled out two separate chances, which came at the 27th and at the 58th minute, as moments where Gonzalo Higuain should have passed the ball for Cristiano Ronaldo to finish Real Madrid’s move with a goal.
CR9’s anger against Higuain is surely not going to seize just yet. Already, there was a sense of rivalry between these two as Argentina’s Higuain revealed his strong desire to win the Pichichi.
Now Cristiano Ronaldo has slammed the striker for playing with individualism against Lyon.
The reality now is that the entire Real Madrid squad has been affected by a Champions League exit. The team’s spirit is now divided.
