Reigning World footballer of the year has lured criticism in the changing room by partying hours after a 4-0 defeat by rivals Atletico.
“Pictures of the celebration did not go down well with Real Madrid’s captains” Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos, Marca wrote on Monday.
Cristiano Ronaldo hosted fellow countryman Pepe, second-choice goalkeeper Keylor Navas, Fabio Coentrao, Luka Modric, Sami Khedira and James Rodriguez.
“The online social networks were on fire with fierce criticism from fans,” reported Madrid sports newspaper AS.
Disgruntled Twitter users even generated a special hashtag, #lafiestadeladeshonra, or “party of disgrace”.
“It was a trending topic all day from 12:00 pm,” AS said.
Cristiano’s agent Jorge Mendes told Cadena SER radio station on Sunday he himself was “very annoyed” by the photographs.
“When there is an event that is totally private and then you see someone is leaking pictures of it, clearly you get annoyed,” Mendes said.
