Cristiano Ronaldo lashes out at Stoke’s Andy Wilkinson
Tricky winger lucky not to be dismissed for kicking incident
After returning from the
pointless marketing exercise greatest game of their lives in Japan, Manchester Utd scraped a 1-0 win at Stole today thanks to a late Carlos Tevez strike.
C-Ron was hacked all over the place throughout the game, and Stoke’s Andy Wilkinson received a second yellow for a pretty careless challenge on the Portuguese man-o’-sex. Ronaldo, however, reacted to the tackle with a move from the Wayne Rooney book of revenge, and was lucky the ref was paying no attention whatsoever.
We’re seeing this kind of petulant behaviour from the Ballon D’or winner more and more of late – it can only be a matter of time until he gets himself in trouble.
