(GSM) - Cristiano Ronaldo has called upon referees to protect him. The Portugal superstar believes that he is being targeted by the opponents.
The Real Madrid ace found it very harsh he received a yellow card for a bust-up with defender Guy Demel in Portugal’s goalless draw with Ivory Coast on Tuesday.
"Referees should protect the more skilful players when they are getting fouled by the opposition,” Ronaldo told The Sun.
"One of their players fouled me in the first half and I got a yellow card for it. I don't understand it. When it is three against one, as it was with their players against me, it is not fair to book me.
