'Bloody Ronaldo' – Atalanta ace De Roon jokes about Cristiano Ronaldo's late Man Utd goal after his one at weekend

MARTEN DE ROON joked about ''bloody Ronaldo' after the Manchester United legend emulated the Atalanta star's stoppage-time heroics.

Cristiano Ronaldo secured United's 2-2 draw at Atalanta on Tuesday – three days after De Roon saved the Italians against Lazio.

Ron admitted United were a 'little lucky' and Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini cheekily urged the Portugal superstar to 'leave him 'alone'.

Now Holland midfielder De Roon has also become an Atalanta banter ranter.

Following his 94th minute intervention at Lazio he posted a clip of his goal with the words: "Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, Marten de Roon scores."

And after United's main man completed a match-saving double at Atalanta with a superb volley, De Roon retweeted his own message and added: "Or bloody Ronaldo."

Ronaldo now has 139 Champions League goals, ahead of Lionel Messi on 123.

But at least third-placed Robert Lewandowski scorched to one record of his own in Europe's top domestic tournament on Tuesday night.


The Bayern Munich striker celebrated his 100th Champions League match with a hat-trick in a 5-2 rout of Benfica to reach 81 goals

That meant he reached 80 in Europe's top domestic tournament faster than any other man.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has now hit six goals against Atalanta.

United's draw kept them top of Group F on goal difference from Villarreal.

And Ron, 36, said: "It was a difficult game. I know when we play in Bergamo it is always difficult, but we believe until the end and I am so happy.

"We never give up, we believe until the end. It is a good result for us.

“When I played at Juventus they were always difficult to play against. We were a little bit lucky in the end but that is football.

"We have to still improve, we have different players, different system, we have to adapt with each other, but it will take time.

"We have time to improve and be better."
