Cristiano Ronaldo's reaction to being subbed for Real Madrid is priceless

The 31-year-old wasn’t quite at his prolific best as Madrid travelled to Las Palmas, who had equalised through Tana after Marco Asensio had opened the scoring.

Karim Benzema put the Champions League holders back in front in the second half, but in the 72nd minute, Madrid fans would have done a double take as Ronaldo was hauled off for Lucas Vazquez.

Ronaldo looked visibly annoyed by Zidane’s decision and he maintained his look of disapproval as he made his way to the touchline.

The Portugal international briefly shook Zidane’s hand but didn’t make eye contact with his manager.

The Madrid boss then got a glare from his star man as he got comfy on the bench.

And to make matters worse for Zidane, Madrid didn’t even escape with three points as Sergio Araujo netted an equaliser with five minutes to go.
