Real Madrid in pre-Cristiano Ronaldo times

Edin Dzeko Roma

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Ronaldo's spat with Florenzi! The Juventus star then savagely trolled the diminutive AS Roma man.

Florenzi and Ronaldo became embroiled in a furious war of words on the hour mark in Rome, in a coming-together that saw the ex-Real Madrid forward gesture at the right-back over his stature and call him "too short" to talk.

The Portuguese player than seemed to apologise and to hug Florenzi. He broke the deadlock minutes later.

Tempers flared between the Juventus forward and Roma defender in the 58th minute of their clash at the Stadio Olimpico with Florenzi nearly squaring up close to Ronaldo.

He found the back of the net in the 79th minute.


The pair clashed on the hour when Ronaldo failed to put the ball out of play when Bosnian striker Dzeko needed medical treatment, with Florenzi confronting the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

The win keeps Roma's Champions League hopes alive with Claudio Ranieri's side sixth, but just one point off Inter Milan who are fourth, before they play Chievo on Monday.

"He's the Ballon d'Or victor and thinks he has the right to do everything he did. I say and do a lot of dumb things on the pitch too, but it stays there", said Florenzi.

Massimiliano Allegri's side have already wrapped up a fifth successive Serie A title, but more failure in the Champions League has overshadowed their domestic success this term.

The Giallorossi, who take on Sassuolo away and Parma at home in their final two games, also face competition from AC Milan and Torino in the race for a Champions League spot.
