MIDDLESBROUGH star Dael Fry shoved ‘beautiful’ Cristiano Ronaldo after knocking the Portuguese superstar out of the FA Cup.
The hometown hero announced before the match that he could ‘make a profit’ with CR7 if given the opportunity.
But after the game, he admitted to BBC Tees: “I didn’t say anything to him. Honestly I didn’t dare look at him!”
“But when I look at him, he looks fake, you know what I mean?”
“He’s so beautiful in real life. I was bummed! But it was a great game. I really enjoyed it and I will cherish it forever. I really can’t describe it.
“To play against players like this and win, it’s amazing.
“Everybody was buzzing. The names in that group were unbelievable and to beat them was another thing.”

It’s safe to say that Fry, 24, will have fond memories of the Ronaldo incident.
And the clash marked his fourth straight game without a goal.
Failure to score against Burnley on Tuesday night will see Ronaldo achieve drought worst target at club level since 2010.
