Togolese footballer, Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed how Jose Mourinho “once killed” Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, despite the Portuguese forward scoring a hat-trick.
According to Adebayor who had a loan spell at Real Madrid during the 2010/2011 season from Manchester City, spoke of how Mourinho once lost his cool in the dressing room, ultimately directing his anger at Ronaldo.
“At Real, we were winning 3-0 at half-time. He (Mourinho) came into the dressing room and went mental. He kicked the fridge, kicked the television, threw water.
“He killed everyone. I remember he once killed Ronaldo after he scored a hat-trick. He said: ‘Everyone says you are the best in the world and you are playing badly. Show me you are the best.’
“Cristiano took it. Ronaldo could score a hat-trick but talk about the one he missed,” Adebayor said.
