Ronaldo's 'Incredible Hulk' impression sees him sent off against Almeria

Posted By: Staff

London, Dec 7(ANI): Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo demonstrated his best Incredible Hulk impression after scoring the last goal in his team's 4-2 win over Almeria on Saturday.

The 80 million pound star looked like the angry green superhero, as he showed off his muscular torso, which incidentally earned him a yellow card.

Ronaldo was involved in much of the action, as he started his first home match for more than two months after being out with an ankle injury. He scored one, set up another goal and won - and missed - a penalty.

He also was also sent off at the death for kicking out at Almeria's midfielder Juanma Ortiz to earn a second yellow card.

Meanwhile, manager Manuel Pellegrini was hardly angry with Ronaldo, who will now be suspended for this weekend's Primera Liga game at fourth-placed Valencia.

"It's a shame that he saw a yellow card for taking his shirt off. He should have avoided that. His double booking was fair because he took his shirt off and because he was involved in a series of fouls," The Sun quoted Pellegrini, as saying.

"He is nevertheless a creative player who doesn't deserve to be sent off - other players make many more fouls and never see a red card," he added. (ANI)
