The Portuguese striker was not please with the way he has been talked about in the media
Real Madrid suffered defeat at the hands of their city rivals Atlético on Saturday, and after the game Cristiano Ronaldo decided to vent his frustrations with the media.
It was a goal from Antoine Griezmann that proved to be enough for Diego Simeone's side, as they once again kept a clean sheet - they've only conceded 11 goals in the league this season.
After the result, Cristiano Ronaldo spoke to the media and highlighted the number of injuries to first-team players that they currently have, saying that he prefers to play with those players. He further remarked that, if the rest of the team were at his level, they would be top of the league.

Ronaldo also hit out at the media, something which has become more frequent in recent weeks after he stormed out of a press conference before his side's game against Roma.
Ronaldo "For all you guys [reporters] it seems I am shit, if I listen to what the press say. The statistics are there."— Dermot Corrigan (@dermotmcorrigan) 27 February 2016
Thankfully for Zidane, it seems that Ronaldo had some nice words for him, saying that the manager needs time to implement his plans.
Ronaldo did at least back Zidane's work: "He cannot play, but is doing phenomenal work. I want to give him time, I'm happy to work with him”— Dermot Corrigan (@dermotmcorrigan) 27 February 2016
