Footballing superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly involved in a heated exchange with former Juventus team-mate, Juan Cuadrado during his time with the Bianconeri - with the footage coming to light in the documentary 'All or Nothing: Juventus.

The heated exchange between the duo took place in the Champions League last season with Juventus eventually exiting at the hands of Porto, as their opponents were leading 1-0 at the Allianz Stadium, which meant a 3-1 aggregate lead.

Ronaldo was not too pleased with the way the match was going, and he couldn't hide his displeasure from the rest of the Juventus side during half time.

Ronaldo: "We have to work harder. What the f***! We didn't play at all! Nothing!"

Cuadrado: "Don't worry"

Ronaldo: "We played s***, always!"

Cuadrado: "You must be an example for everyone"

Ronaldo: "I'm included too. We have to tell each other the truth, we played s***. This is a Champions League match, we need to have personality.

Then Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo decided to intervene by asking both the players to calm down, reiterating that they need to be calm and patient.

"That's enough, let's go. That's enough, Cri. That's enough, Juan. We have to be calm and patient. We will continue in this spirit, but without arguing, with the posture of someone who wants to win."

The Bianconeri went on to lose the game 3-2, which was the last straw for Ronaldo who moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2021.
