Real Madrid legend Alfredo di Stefano has left Cristiano Ronaldo high and dry, siding with fans who have booing the Portuguese star. The former Manchester United ace has been stunned by the boos and whistles coming from his own fans this season.

"The stadium is always right, this should not be questioned."
