Ronaldo can’t understand growing criticism

Cristiano Ronaldo feels it is unfair that he continues to face increasing criticism.

The Portuguese star was speaking after scoring twice in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday.

“It seems that match after match I have to show who I am,” Ronaldo said. “I’m surprised by the public opinion about me. Again, the numbers speak for themselves.”

Ronaldo was criticised after a poor performance in Real’s 1-0 home lose to Real Betis last week, during which he missed several chances, including a few clear cut ones in front of goal.
