Joan Laporta taunts Cristiano Ronaldo over penalty miss

Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta has taken to social media to mock Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed a penalty in Los Blancos' costly draw with Málaga on Sunday.

Real were leading 1-0 at La Rosaleda when the Portuguese forward saw his spot-kick saved by goalkeeper Carlos Kameni. Raúl Albentosa later levelled for the Andalusians, leaving Zinedine Zidane's men nine points adrift of La Liga leaders Barça.

And following the match, Laporta published a meme featuring a picture of the Real forward, with the words: "I know why I missed that penalty, but I'm not going to tell you."

The Facebook post is a clear reference to similar comments made by Cristiano over Leo Messi and Luis Suárez's two-man effort from 12 yards against Celta Vigo earlier this month.

Speaking before Madrid's midweek Champions League win at Roma, the 31-year-old had said of the Barça pair's penalty: "I know why Leo did this, but I won’t elaborate any more."
