Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo was left unimpressed after his team-mate Cedric Soares displayed a laughable jump during Portugal‘s training session.
Ronaldo and his team-mates were preparing for their crucial World Cup Qualifiers playoff clash against North Macedonia when the Southampton defender gave the 37-year-old something to imitate.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s jumping ability is one of his main attributes, but the same cannot be said of Cedric, at least in the eyes of the Man United forward.
During a training session ahead of tonight’s clash, Cedric Soares jumped to head the ball but ended up making a mockery of himself, at least in the eyes of Ronaldo.
And Ronaldo was not impressed with the jump of the side, which he decided to imitate in a joking tone, according to maisfutebol.

Cristiano Ronaldo was quiet during Portugal’s 3-1 win over Turkey last week but Fernando Santos defended the Manchester United forward, insisting that Ronaldo played a tremendous games.
“My strategy against Turkey worked,” said Santos after the game. “Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score but it bothered Turkey.
“Ronaldo opened up space, our other players scored comfortably. Ronaldo played a tremendous game.
“We analyzed Ronaldo for the goals. When he doesn’t score… Cristiano played a tremendous game like the whole team.
“He played a game of work and intensity. He didn’t score, but that doesn’t detract from the excellent performance he did. This is noteworthy.”
