CR7 appears to snub Platini at CWC final

DEBATE: Did CR7 SNUB UEFA president Platini at CWC final? (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

December 21, 2014 By Michelle Bonsu
The Real Madrid star was not impressed with Platini's most recent comments. But did he snub the UEFA president at the CWC final?

Earlier this year, UEFA president Michel Platini incurred the wrath of Real Madrid, and especially Cristiano Ronaldo fans with comments he made about their favorite player.

Despite the two-time Ballon d'Or winner being a favorite to defend his title in January, the retired midfield star, who won three prizes from 1983-1985 during a successful spell with Juventus, believes that the much-sought award should go to a German player.

Die Mannschaft enjoyed a successful tournament in Brazil as they steamrolled past the hosts en route to clinching victory over Argentina thanks to Mario Gotze's late goal. And when asked about his opinion, the former French international stated, as per beIN Sport:

"I don’t vote for the Ballon d’Or but, in principle, [in a World Cup year] it’s a player who has produced big performances in the tournament who wins it so it should be a German this year."

Real Madrid were not impressed, and obviously, neither was CR7. So a month later, here he is apaprently showing his displeasure after his team's win in the Club World Cup final:

VINE of the apparent snub

This is not the first time that the Portuguese star has been criticized by footballing officials. CR7 supporters were certainly enraged last season with Sepp Blatter's statements that clearly showed his bias towards four-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi.

However, with this latest incident, new evidence perhaps shows that all was not what it seemed to be.

Check out some photos of the post-match meeting between Cristiano Ronaldo and Michel Platini:

With the ceremony just around the corner, this will certainly have some talking over the Christmas break regarding the "feud" between the footballer and the UEFA boss.
