What raging CR7 said to pitch invader

UEFA Champions League

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was pictured raging at a pitch invader who grabbed his neck after their UEFA Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

Ronaldo, 34, handed the Italian champions a 75th-minute lead with his 128th Champions League goal before striker partner Gonzalo Higuain added a second.

But after the final whistle, an enthusiastic fan entered the pitch and evaded security aiming to take a selfie with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Clearly catching Ronaldo off guard with an arm thrown around his neck, the Portugal captain pushed the fan away before security intervened.

According to The Mirror, the Champions League record scorer shouted numerous times, 'are you crazy' as the pitch invader was dragged off the pitch.

After the game in which he scored his third goal of the campaign with Juventus marching towards the last-16, he opened up about his recent form.

"I feel good - the annoyance I felt has passed and the team is in good shape," Ronaldo said, as per BBC Football.

"Today we played a good second half. We are all growing and even I personally felt better today, more confident, and I hope to continue like this."
