After being questioned about his record in away matches this season, Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo walked out of a news conference.
Since 29th November, Ronaldo has not netted away from the Bernabeu, even though, he has scored 32 goals this season.
Speaking on the issue, the 31 year old said, “Who else has scored more goals away from home than me since I arrived in Spain? Name one player who has scored more than me. No answer? OK. Thank you.”
Before the first leg of Real's Champions League last-16 tie against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico today, Ronaldo made the above statements in a news conference.
In last December, the Portuguese became the first player to score 10 goals in the competition's group stage.
During this season, eleven of his goals have come away from home, but he has not scored in his past four away games.
Speaking on it, Ronaldo said, “It's understandable that people have doubts. It's like with a son when you give him everything and then when you take it away, he cries. I hope that I can keep this 'bad form' up until the season's end.”
