VAR victim Cristiano Ronaldo mocked the controversial new technologies by ditching his iconic aim celebrations to make video-replay signals.
The £99million superstar grinned as he pretended to contact for VAR and then gestured for the crowd to wait calmly for an imaginary verdict soon after he hit the third Juventus aim in Saturday’s unbelievable four-three win more than Napoli.
Ronaldo, 34, made the light-hearted gestures a week soon after VAR ruled his opening day strike at Parma was offside by millimetres.
This time there was no doubt more than his aim – following the second help of the game from Juve’s Brazil winger Douglas Costa.
And alternatively of his renowned pirouette celebration, Ronaldo wheeled away and pointed his fingers forward to jokingly point for a video replay.
The 34-year-old continued smiling broadly as he place his palms down, as if telling fans to preserve quiet though they waited for a VAR verdict.
And even even though some supporters in Turin seemed to contact for the ex-Manchester United and Actual Madrid attacker to throw in his usual aim salute, Ronaldo merely walked away to take his group-mates’ congratulations.
It all ramped up the drama on a evening exactly where Napoli had been left with absolutely nothing from a game that had all the things.
Former Manchester City proper-back Danilo, just a minute soon after coming on for his debut, ex-Chelsea loanee Gonzalo Higuain and Ronaldo place Juve three- up just previous the hour-mark.
But Napoli responded with 3 ambitions in 15 minutes, through Kostas Manolas, Hirving Lozano and Giovanni di Lorenzo.
Sadly for the guests, even though, former Manchester United target Kalidou Koulibaly got his angles all incorrect in stoppage time to place by means of his personal net for Juve’s winner.
