Cristiano Ronaldo, however, tried to intervene and asked Gonzalo Higuain to calm down. But the AC Milan footballer was not in the mood to keep quite a few seconds later walked off the field in tears. However, Higuain’s gesture did not annoy Ronaldo and he instead went on to defend the AC Milan footballer and said that it was quite understandable as their team was losing the match. “I told him to calm down, as he risked an even worse ban. He didn't do much, he was annoyed at losing the game. That's understandable. I hope he is not punished too severely,” said Ronaldo.
