PSG fullback Alves denies Ronaldo nose blow: Stupid things, stupid people

PSG fullback Daniel Alves has denied wiping his nose on Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo during Tuesday's Champions League defeat.

The pair had a running battle during Madrid's 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes, with Ronaldo fortunate to avoid punishment after aiming a petulant kick out at Alves.

But Alves, a former rival from his time at Barcelona, refuted claims he had taken revenge on Ronaldo by wiping his nose on the Portugal international.

"In my job it's not painful to be eliminated because that's part of day-to-day life, but to have to see and read stupid things like this..." Alves wrote on Twitter.

"I will continue competing like I have done and leave the nonsense to stupid people #respectwinorlose"
