Poor Rafa’s been having trouble making friends with the most popular boy in the class.
AS reported that Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was not too impressed with his new manager’s training drills, especially with the popular crossbar challenge, calling the drill “shit”.
Benitez apparently forced every player to strike the crossbar before finishing the session. Whether it was to test their patience and accuracy or rather reminiscing over his well-spent youth attempting to smash the bar, it didn’t come across as a necessary task for Ronaldo, moaning that they should be aiming to put the ball in the net, “not this shit”.
The Spanish giants have a big season ahead of them after losing out to rivals Barcelona in both the fight for La Liga as well as the Champions League.
