Juventus striker Ronaldo blew fuse with teammates; punched dressing room wall

Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo blew a fuse after their 3-1 defeat of Genoa.

Juventus took all three points through goals by Dejan Kulusevski, Alvaro Morata and Weston McKinnie - though Ronaldo was unable to get onto the scoresheet.

The Portuguese superstar was visibly frustrated during the game after failing to find the back of the net.

Gazetta dello Sport says the 36-year-old 'got angry' with a number of his teammates, including Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Chiesa after 'poor passes'.

He is also said to have had a row with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for throwing the ball out because there was a Genoa player on the ground as he told his team: "There are ten of them, we have to attack".

Ronaldo threw his Juventus shirt on the ground after the game which looked to be another sign of frustration, though it was in the direction of a ballboy who had requested it.

His anger is then said to have reached boiling point after the game as he 'punched the wall' inside the dressing room.
