AC Milan legend lashes out at Real Madrid forward

Franco BaresiFormer AC Milan defender Franco Baresi has lashed out at Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo for his certain behaviour in Wednesday’s Champions League match against Juventus.

The 28-year-old was involved in a controversial foul that saw Bianconeri defender Giorgio Chiellini sent off with a red card early on in the second half, which has resulted in accusations of diving and simulation, as there are a number of clips and pictures pointing out his exaggeration during the slight contact.

Baresi posted one of these pictures of Chiellini’s soft foul on his official Twitter page along with a statement condemning the Portuguese international for his actions.

“The greatest players should behave differently,” read the short statement written by the 53-year-old, which was met with much agreement from his followers.

Real Madrid ended up defeating Juventus 2-1, with both of their goals coming from Ronaldo, and will face the reigning Serie A champions again in Turin on November 5.
