Real Madrid chief Emilio Butragueno admits the club remains upset with FIFA president Sepp Blatter's mocking of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Blatter has since apologised for his comments.

But after victory over Sevilla, Butragueno remarked: "Cristiano is a blessing for football. Magnifies the sport and so we surprised by Blatter's behavior. Everyone deserves respect, but also in the case of Cristiano we are talking about one of the best in the history of football and Blatter was not respectful.

"Whenever Cristiano hurts, we hurt ourselves and that was a painful episode."
