During the first half of the Madrid derby between Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid, an errant Cristiano Ronaldo shot hit a girl wearing a Rayo shirt in the head. The girl laughed it off as the Bukaneros — Rayo ultras — sitting around her shouted insults at Ronaldo. At halftime, Cristiano tried to make it up to the girl by making a point to toss her his shirt as he headed for the tunnel.
The young fan was delighted with the gift, high-fiving other Rayo fans around her. But the Bukaneros did not appreciate the show of sportsmanship and chanted "burn it, burn it." The girl eventually gave in to the pressure and tossed the shirt back onto the pitch, with TV cameras catching a steward taking it into the tunnel, presumably to return to Ronaldo, who scored twice in 3-2 win for Real Madrid that made one Rayo defender cry.
Sometimes football fans are no fun.
