Chilean unhappy with United star
Roma ace David Pizarro has hit out at Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo, labelling him as a 'big head'.
Pizarro was unhappy with some of Ronaldo's antics during Roma's 2-0 defeat to United in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Tuesday night.
Chilean midfielder Pizarro was booked at the end of the first half for felling Ronaldo after some showboating from the Portuguese international.
Pizarro has accused Ronaldo of not showing respect to his opponents and the Roma man expects more tricks from the in-form winger in the return leg at Old Trafford.
"There is no doubt that he has quality, but it is also true that he has a big head," Pizarro told the Italian press.
"Some of his little tricks in the middle of the pitch were unnecessary and he needs to show some respect to his opposition. You can bet that we will have something to say about it in the return leg."
Pizarro admitted he was disappointed by the defeat and vowed Roma will do all they can to overturn the deficit in the second leg.
"We played our game and we are disappointed that we weren't able to make the most of our chances," added Pizarro
"Games are decided by certain moments, but I'd be interested to see how many shots they had.
"It just went badly even though we created plenty and if we had been able to convert our opportunities we wouldn't have lost.
"We still believe in our Scudetto and Champions League chances - this team will never give up."
