Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he told South Korean forward, Cho Gue Sung to shut up during their World Cup last group game on Friday.
Both players had a brief spat during the game as the Korean tried to hurry the Portuguese superstar off the pitch.
The game was still on 1-1 when Ronaldo was substituted in the 65 minute, but the Asians came from behind to win 2-1, with both teams qualifying for the last 16 of the World Cup as a result.
The Asian side wanted to score a second goal to ensure them a second place finish in the group, so Cho was keen to hurry the superstar forward off the pitch.
And while doing so, there was a minor altercation between them, with Ronaldo explaining: “Before my substitution, one of their players was telling me to leave quickly.
“I told him to shut up, he has no authority, he doesn’t have to say anything.
“I would speed up the pace if the referee said so. He doesn’t have to. There’s no controversy, it happened in the heat of the game.”
