Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reacted angrily to being substituted at the weekend, and was reportedly put in his place by captain Sergio Ramos.
Los Blancos continued their quest for the La Liga title, beating Athletic Bilbao 2-1 away from home on Saturday.
Ronaldo was unable to get on the scoresheet during the fixture, but did provide the assist for Karim Benzema’s opener in the first half.
The Portuguese was taken off with 10 minutes remaining in the clash, and he reacted angrily to the decision, according to the Daily Express.
Ronaldo was reportedly seen swearing to himself as he exited the pitch on Saturday, with other reports claiming he was upset that Zinedine Zidane chose to take him off instead of Gareth Bale.
Real captain Ramos is said to have reprimanded the forward after the final whistle, reminding the Portugal captain that he needs to help Los Blancos secure the league title.
The former Manchester United star might have been annoyed that he did not score in the game, with many pundits and fans alike claiming he has not been at his best this season.
Ronaldo has scored 26 goals and assisted a further 11 strikes in 34 matches across all competitions for Real in this campaign.
