Dinamo-Zagreb

Hours before his match against Dinamo Zagreb, Porto captain Lucho Gonzalez was informed of the death of his father. He was immediately given permission to fly to his homeland of Argentina to grieve but, instead, he chose to lead his side out in Croatia and, furthermore, insisted the news be kept from his colleagues. 

Respect.

Cristiano Ronaldo booed by jealousy

Real Madrid goal machine Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed how he feels that people only boo him because they are jealous of what he has. Ronaldo claimed that he has no other explanation for it, than that the boo boys are obviously envious of him as a whole.   Cristiano made the remarks after experiencing constant booing by the Dinamo Zagreb crowd on Wednesday night. He explained. “I think that because I am rich, handsome and a great player people are envious of me. I don’t have any other explanation.” Ronaldo also had a dig at the level of referring in the game at the moment.   He added, “I’m sad because I hear referees saying they will protect skilful players, but while some are untouchable it seems I can be mauled.” It was recently suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo could be set to marry his girlfriend Irina Shayk after the model was spotted wearing a giant sparkler on her finger.
