After the adverse result against Serbia, a Juventus legend is convinced Cristiano Ronaldo overreacted when his goal was disallowed. 

The whole world saw how Cristiano Ronaldo was robbed of a clear goal against Serbia last weekend, but a Juventus legend didn’t like his reaction. In fact, he thinks the Portuguese captain overreacted by taking his armband and throwing it on the floor. The problem here is that this criticism comes from the ultimate Bianconeri figure: Alessandro del Piero.

As we all know, the Italian former player is the biggest name in the club’s history. Not siding with Ronaldo in something so easy to see can become a problem later. If the star doesn’t like the reaction from Del Piero, this could very well be a reason for Ronaldo to stay or leave the club. In the past, Cristiano Ronaldo has been known for his reactions to criticism.

In a recent interview for ESPN, Alessandro del Piero offered his opinion about Cristiano Ronaldo’s dramatic reaction. Even though he was right to protest, Alex is more traditional with his reactions to unjust calls. “This is an over-reaction. He shouldn’t act like this, in that way,” Del Piero told ESPN.

“It’s OK to be angry, it’s OK to discuss it with the referee, but to throw the armband and keep going like this is too much for someone who is the team captain and represents an iconic figure like him. I also understand the moment, the importance of the match, and also the personal ambition that he puts into everything he does.”
