Roberto Carlos: Cristiano Ronaldo is upset because Iniesta beat him to UEFA Best Player in Europe award
Former Brazil international Roberto Carlos believes Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is feeling upset because Barcelona midfielder Andrés Iniesta beat him to this year's UEFA Best Player in Europe award.
Ronaldo, 27, stunned the football world after revealing he was left saddened by a ''professional issue'' at the club after refusing to celebrate his two goals in the 3-0 La Liga win over Granada on Sunday.
However, Roberto Carlos reckons that the Portugal international is feeling unhappy because he did not win the 2011-12 UEFA Best Player in Europe award.
''I think Cristiano is a bit upset about losing out to Iniesta for the Best Player in Europe award,'' the former Real Madrid left-back told Radio Marca.
''I would tell Cristiano to just keep playing the way he does.''
