Opinion: Van Dijk Had Every Right To Put Ronaldo In His Place After His Petulant Kick At Jones

Watching a frustrated Cristiano Ronaldo kick out at a 20 year old Curtis Jones with Manchester United four goals down at home to Liverpool, I couldn't help but feel embarrassed as a big fan of the 5 time Ballon D'or winner.

Honestly, I could understand the frustration of the 36 year old, but transferring aggression unto a kid whose age is almost half of his was embarrassing to see. photo credit: getty images

When I was watching the game, I thought, someone had to put Ronaldo in his place after what he did and I was glad to see Virgil Van Dijk stand up for Jones as he shoved Ronaldo aside.photo credit: getty images

No disrespect to Ronaldo, but his actions on the day was quite disappointing and Van Dijk had every right to put him in his place.

I've seen people suggest that Van Dijk disrespected Ronaldo by shoving him the way he did, but the truth is that, everything that happened during the drama was caused by Ronaldo himself.
