Reports: Ronaldo Accuses Opponent Of Being Bribed

Reports: Cristiano Ronaldo Accuses Opponent Of Being Bribed

By David Kappel - May 19, 2017 11:05 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has caused new headlines in Spain after apparently accusing an opponent of being bribed to beat Los Blancos.

The Spanish giants won their catch-up game against Celta Vigo 4-1 earlier this week, but the match at Balaidos was trickier than the scoreline suggests.

One incident in particular has now caught the attention of major publications in Spain. It took place in the second half just after Celta's Iago Aspas was sent off in the 62nd minute, with Real leading 2-0 at the time.

Marca and AS have picked up on TV footage from Movistar+, which shows Ronaldo clashing with Celta's Gustavo Cabral.

The Portuguese can be seen arguing with the defender after Cabral accused Ronaldo of diving moments after Aspas was harshly sent off for a similar incident.

Spanish media have claimed that Ronaldo yelled, "You, lots of money. Maletin," at the opposition player, while rubbing his fingers together in the universal "money" gesture and mimicking the action of carrying a briefcase.

"Maletin" can be translated to briefcase, which is one of the most controversial concepts in Spanish football, balancing between a legal bribe and the borders of match-fixing, in which a third party gets involved in a match that is in their interest.

Briefcase allegations are expected to again be made for Real's final La Liga clash of the season against Malaga, with reports suggesting the hosts will be paid to upset Los Blancos on the final day of the campaign.

Zinedine Zidane's men lead the log with three points over FC Barcelona, and only need a draw at Malaga to lift their first La Liga title since 2011/12.

Do you think Real will be able to finish the job and lift the La Liga title? Have your say in the comments section below.

Does it really matter if your opponent is bribed or not, just go there and take care of business as usual unless if you don't have confidence in yourself then you'll wory abt bribery.

The opponent did this because only Real Madrid affiliates like Madrid, no one else,no bribery involved.

@Hlubzin well said cule Barca have themselves to blame, the loss against Deportivo was the turning point, they lost when Madrid slipped up,they had all the motivation to win the game but they lost, I know there were some controversial decisions which cost Barca some Points but we just can't use that bcos Barca have not been convincing at all, they just never played like Champions there was no consistency whatsoever, the sad part is that Messi is playing at his best but come end of the czen he may only have Copa del Rey only for his efforts. Without Messi Barca would have been nowhere this czen but Real Madrid were winning easily without Ronaldo and even when he was off form and the difference is that Real Madrid have a better team than Barca unfortunately.

We have ourselves to blame for losing to Malaga...agree or disagree Zidane is doing a phenomenal job.two perfect winning teams all I can do is sit back and hope for unlikely miracle...in all honesty Zidane is the best coach it wud be a football crime if they don't win the league and or ECL against both my beloved Barca and Juventus.In all truth ngizominca strong I wd love nothing more than to see hynas in pain and in tears...Visca el Barca,Forza Bianconerri!!

i do not see the reason for malaga to not loose the game and get paid by madrid for winning the league. i mean they stand to loose a lot if they beat madrid.

what i know for sure is that malaga will get paid if madrid takes the league, that is a clause in Isco`s contract that if the y win the league before 5 years after they bought him then Malaga will get paid - that is a fact.

Teams are always playing for a win, but some fans n supporters expect a favour from a team that has already lost a league, no such in football, u plan must always be strong than of the so called small teams, coz they want to win every game including last games of the league

@skols you can be in order to stop certain team getting points. Like being paid to do what we call "favor" if one team beats or stop the other in granting the other advantage. Eg Maritzburg draw with downs... Wits win titttle
