MILAN (AFP) – Roma captain Alessandro Florenzi hit back at a jibe by Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo about his height by going on to score the opener in a 2-0 win over the Serie A champions on Sunday.
The pair clashed on the hour mark in the Stadio Olimpico in a row after the Portuguese star played the ball while Edin Dzeko was down and needed treatment.
Ronaldo made a gesture with his hand with the former Real Madrid star heard saying: “You’re too small to talk.”
The Portuguese player than seemed to apologise and to hug Florenzi.
Dzeko set up Florenzi for the first after 79 minutes with the Bosnian then slotting a second two minutes into injury time.
