Man Utd's Ronaldo: Ref upset Mum!

Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed ref Rob Styles upset his Mum after booking him for diving against Fulham on Monday.

The Portuguese star was denied his first hat-trick for Manchester United when Styles booked him for diving instead of awarding a penalty.

Ronaldo's double was his 12th brace since joining the Red Devils in 2003 but despite a terrific scoring record, the winger's mother is less than impressed.

Ronaldo revealed: "My mum sometimes says to me 'why do you never score a hat-trick?!'.

"But I always tell her I'm happy to keep scoring two goals.

"I'm a winger, not a striker, but my mentality is always to try and help the team, whether it is by making a goal or scoring one."
