Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly left upset following the criticism of Karim Benzema by Real Madrid fans and called for the Frenchman to be cheered on and not criticised.

A bad miss from Benzema right at the end of Saturday night's match against Real Sociedad was met with whistles from some of the supporters at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu despite their comfortable 5-2 lead.

Spanish newspaper MARCA reports the cameras of Movistar+ captured Ronaldo waving his finger at some supporters, before gesturing for applause by clapping his hands.

Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick, while Lucas Vazquez and Toni Kroos got on the scoresheet as well to set the tune for next week's UEFA Champions League showdown against Paris Saint-Germain.
