Real Madrid goalkeeper, Keylor Navas says teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo is hurt whenever he is being jeered by fans of the club.
Despite his status as Real Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer, the four-time Ballon d’Or winner was jeered by the club’s supporters during Sunday’s 3-0 league win over Real Sociedad.
The Portugal captain, who had shouldered all the blames for the club’s slump of one win in five matches, was not happy with the whistles he got from the fans.
He later set up the first goal before scoring the second.
Navas told SER, “You can tell that Cristiano really loves all the fans and Sergio Ramos has said so.
“It’s not that he doesn’t care that they whistle him. It hurts him when they whistle and jeer but he knows that the fans also support us. He always tries to help the team by scoring goals.
“These things happen. I was a new player and it didn’t take me by surprise.
“When the fans and players are united, the team is always much stronger so, when the fans really get behind us, it gives us a huge boost – and that’s what we want.”
“We pay more attention to what’s going on within the team. You can always improve and that’s what we are trying to do.
“Little by little we are reaching our objectives. We feel good in ourselves and strong.
“We don’t want to lose the good feeling of unity we have and we want to keep winning.”
