Juventus Ronaldo's Shirt Throw vs Genoa Explained 

Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo displayed frustration in the Serie A match against Genoa throwing his shirt on the ground on Sunday but it was further explained as an act of 'champions' by his coach, Andrea Pirlo.

It appeared as if the 5-time Balon d'Or winner was showing another angry moment after he dropped his captain armband on International duty with Portugal vs Serbia earlier in April during the World Cup Qualifier.

It was later discovered that Cristiano Ronaldo was giving his shirt to a ball boy when he threw it away at the end of Juventus' 3-1 win against Genoa.

Dejan Kulusevski, Alvaro Morata and Weston McKennie were all on target for the Italian champions as they try to catch up with the two Milan teams at the top of the table.

"It is part of the attitude of champions who always want to leave their mark."

Ronaldo currently leads the Serie A scoring chart with 25 goals, 4 goals ahead of Romelu Lukaku (21).
