Cristiano Ronaldo Celebrates La Liga Title By Taunting Javi Martinez (Video)
Cristiano Ronaldo should have enjoyed Real Madrid’s 3-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao yesterday, as he scored his 44th goal of the season while helping Real Madrid clinch their first La Liga title in four years. However, he was having a tough time taking it all in, as he was forced to endure a constant string of trash-talk from the mouth of opposing midfielder Javi Martinez.
Among their many verbal exchanges was this interesting line from Martinez to Ronaldo:
“Don’t celebrate too much, I’m a World Cup champion and you’re not, clown.”
Martinez did play for Spain’s national team that won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, but you probably wouldn’t have known that, seeing as how he played in just 17 minutes throughout the entire tournament. Ronaldo probably wasn’t even aware of the fact that Martinez was part of Spain’s World Cup winning squad, and certainly didn’t seem to care, as he was only interested in sharing one final gesture with Martinez before celebrating his La Liga title with his teammates.
You can see that gesture in the video below.
