OAtletico Madrid fans are by no means the biggest fans of Cristiano Ronaldo, given the Portugal international’s long history of scoring 25 goals in the 36 times he faced them.
However, the ‘truce’ may have been sealed on February 23, following a gesture made by the striker immediately after the 1-1 draw between Manchester United and the Colchoneros.
A fan captured footage from the stands that shows the Sporting-trained player avoiding stepping on the Madrid symbol on the pitch, which immediately went viral and deserved applause.
