Man Utd striker Ronaldo blows fuse after Lodi Atletico Madrid winner

Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo was left furious with Renan Lodi's winner for Atletico Madrid last night.

The 1-0 win for Atletico saw United eliminated from the Champions League 2-1 on aggregate.

After Lodi's header handed the visitors the lead, United players protested about a perceived foul on Anthony Elanga in the build-up that the referee had not given.

Ronaldo in particular was irate as he could be seen furiously gesturing to the referee as the Atletico players reeled away in celebration.

The 37-year-old appeared to question the quality of the official's vision as he held his hands up to his eyes to make the globally-recognised glasses signal.

The forward's protests were to no avail however, as the referee's decision and the goal stood after a VAR review.
