Cristiano Ronaldo had some words to say after Real Madrid's 0-1 loss to Atlético de Madrid in the Derby. "If my teammates were on my level maybe we would be leading the Liga table," said the Portuguese in the mixed zone after the game.

"Every year I'm playing like (expletive), according to the press, but my numbers and stats say otherwise," he added.

"I don't want to underrate my own teammates, but it's hard to win when the best players are not there. I like to play with Bale, Karim, Marcelo, Pepe... I am not saying that Jesé, Kovacic or Lucas are not good, they are good, but..." Ronaldo said.

The Portuguese star also said that Real Madrid deserved to win. "We had more chances and deserved to win, but it is what it is."

Ronaldo's words about his teammates won't go unnoticed, and it's definitely controversy time at Real Madrid given that the fans also sang about Florentino resigning as the President.
