Cristiano Ronaldo brutally trolled Diego Simeone after his hat-trick helped Juventus beat Atletico de Madrid 3-0 in their second-leg Round of 16 tie of the Champions League.
In their first-leg encounter, Atletico Madrid beat the Turin side 2-0 after which an impassioned Simeone celebrated in a controversial manner by pointing both of his hands towards his crotch.
OFFICIEL ! 🚨
Pour son geste contre la Juventus, l'UEFA met une amende de 20.000€ à Diego Simeone. Notre coach argentin sera bel et bien sur le banc de l'Atlético à Turin. #Aúpaatleti 🔴⚪ pic.twitter.com/8HOSsbEWMf

He later explained in interviews that he used to do that as a player to showcase his cojones. Even though he escaped a touchline ban, UEFA slapped a fine of 20,000 euros and demanded his apology.
Ronaldo scored a perfect hat-trick to seal the deal and help Juventus progress to the quarter-finals and to add insult to injury imitated the Argentine manager’s controversial celebration.
When previously asked by journalists if he expected Juventus to make a comeback like Ajax and Manchester United, Simeone responded by saying if that were to happen he would sell melons in the streets of Madrid.
It seems like Simeone will now have to eat his words as football fans all over the world have already started trolling him.
