Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his intense dedication towards excelling on the field, with the striker known to want to score in every game that he plays and he showed an example of it during the Bianconeri's recent 3-1 win over Genoa.

While Juventus cruised to a win on the night, Ronaldo was was visibly frustrated during the game after failing to find the back of the net, and now La Gazetta dello Sport have now claimed that he 36-year-old 'got angry' with a number of his team-mates, including Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Chiesa after 'poor passes'.

The striker was also said to have had a row with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for throwing the ball out because there was a Genoa player on the ground as he told his team: 'There are ten of them, we have to attack'.

Such was his frustration that the report goes on to claim that he 'punched the wall' inside the dressing room after the game. This season has been a frustrating one for both Ronaldo and Juventus as they have already been knocked out of the Champions League and look set to lose the Serie A title as they sit 12 points behind Inter Milan with eight games remaining.

Despite the disappointing season his club has having, the Portugal skipper has been his usual excellent self in front of goal, scoring 32 goals in all competitions so far, with 25 of those coming in the Serie A.
