CRISTIANO RONALDO was not happy with the referee after being on the end of some brutal Atletico Madrid challenges.
The Manchester United star played the full 90 minutes in tonight’s 1-1 Champions League last 16 draw in Spain.
However, Ronaldo is sure to wake up with a few bruises tomorrow after some rough treatment on the field.
That’s because he was on the receiving end of some meaty challenges at the Wanda Metropolitano.
The tone was set before kick-off when the ex-Real Madrid star received raucous boos from the Atletico crowd when his name was shown on the big screen.
Ronaldo was continually jeered throughout the heated clash, which saw NINE players booked.
However, the first half saw ref Ovidiu Hategan dish out just one booking to Marcos Llorente for a foul on Harry Maguire.
And as the whistle blew for the break, Ronaldo confronted the official to vent his anger at the other challenges which went unpunished.

In the end, a further three Atletico players ended up receiving yellows, with five United aces also booked.
But it will be the Red Devils feeling the happier of the two after fighting back for a draw.
That’s because Atleti dominated proceedings from the off.
And they made a flying start when Joao Felix headed home with just eight minutes on the clock.
However, a tactical masterstroke from United paid off when sub Anthony Elanga netted an 80th minute equaliser to save some face.
