Cristiano Ronaldo mocks Lionel Messi’s Bernabeu celebration


Last season when Barcelona beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu thanks to a Lionel Messi stoppage time game-winner, the Argentinian star celebrated by taking off his shirt and holding it up in front of the Madrid crowd.

Ever the eternal rivalry, Cristiano Ronaldo was not about to let that slide. During the first leg of the Spanish Supercopa, Ronaldo scored a fantastic goal to give Real Madrid a 2-1 lead late in the match. He proceeded to do the exact same celebration just to make sure there was no confusion about who he is.

He got a yellow card that would be costly later in the match, but who cares? What a savage move to make and a message sent loud and clear.
