    Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo's missed opportunity turned into an incredible assist to Mario Mandzukic in a Serie A clash against Lazio. His reaction to the teammate's goal, however, instigated controversy among football fans, drawing suggestions that the Portuguese wasn't happy with the goalless start of his spell at Juventus.

    Juventus new signing Cristiano Ronaldo failed to beat Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha in Saturday's Serie A fixture. However, his miss turned into an assist as the ball ricocheted off his heels only to rebound to his teammate Mandzukic, who volleyed it in with his right foot to double Juventus's lead.

    After Mandzukic's goal, Ronaldo threw his arms in the air, in an action that some football fans have interpreted as an expression of anger.

    ​Others, however, have dismissed this explanation, arguing that the Portugal superstar was later seen smiling and hugging his teammate.

    The 33-year-old former Real Madrid all-time top-scorer, who joined Juventus in a $117 million move this summer, drew another blank following a goalless debut against Chievo in the Serie A opener.
