Morata tells Atletico Madrid fans: Don't worry about Ronaldo gestures

Atletico Madrid striker Alvaro Morata says fans shouldn't worry about the gestures of Cristiano Ronaldo last night.

During the 2-0 Champions League win over Juve, Ronaldo hit back at Atleti fans making a 'five' gesture to remind the home support of the number of European titles he's won.

Morata said afterwards: "They are details that pass every game on the field, maybe it's bigger for being Cristiano, I would not give it importance."

On coming off the bench, he continued: "I did not expect to be a starter, playing this game was very important, because of what we had prepared, I knew I was going to have my chance, it was a shame that I did not score, we worked as we always do."
