Cristiano Ronaldo has pleaded with the Real Madrid fans to stop booing him after he scored a hat-trick against Bayern Munich to help his side into the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The forward, who had netted twice in the first leg, was the subject of jeers from the Santiago Bernabeu crowd in the first half after a couple of wayward shots.
But he proved to be the difference after the break in Madrid’s 4-2 win after extra-time, setting up a 6-3 aggregate victory.
The Portuguese forward’s header cancelled out Robert Lewandowski’s goal late in the second half and he then finished off Bayern with strikes in either half of extra-time.
And the four-time World Player of the Year put his finger to his lips to the supporters after scoring his first of the night.
“I’m not asking them to name streets after me, the only thing I ask is that they don’t boo me here,” he told Spanish TV station Antena 3.
“I want them to stop booing me because I always give my best and even as and when I don’t score I try to help Real Madrid.”
