Atletico Madrid boss, Diego Simeone has spoken about Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo’s celebration after the Portuguese netted a hat-trick in their Champions League round of 16 second leg in Turin on Tuesday.
The Argentine gaffer also spoke on the performance of the 34-year-old former Real Madrid star in the game.
Ronaldo goaded Atletico Madrid’s supporters by using the Simeone’s ‘cojones’ celebration following Juventus’ 3-0 victory.
Max Allegri’s men were chasing a 2-0 defeat from the first leg in Spain but Ronaldo scored 3 times to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Atletic boss, Simone was fined €20,000 (£17,000) after he turned to Atletico’s fans and grabbed his crotch during his celebrations in the first leg in Spain.
However, after scoring his hat-trick in Turin on Tuesday, Ronaldo used the same celebration.
Asked about Ronaldo’s celebration in his post-match press conference, Simeone said, “Surely he was thinking about his people when he did it, like me at the Wanda, saying they have personality.”
