Cristiano Ronaldo ‘kisses’ Paulo Dybala on the lips in celebration as Juventus stars’ relationship develops on pitch

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S on-pitch relationship with Juventus team-mate Paulo Dybala appears to be developing VERY well if this picture is anything to go by.

The former Manchester United striker had just slotted his team into a 2-1 lead in their Serie A game against Parma.

It was his second of the game. His earlier effort had been cancelled out by Parma sub Andreas Cornelius.

Dybala squared in for Ronaldo to score what turned out to be the winner.

As the pair ran towards the touchline one still from the celebration appears to show them "kiss on the lips".

But it seems to be a trick of the camera as when you watch it unfold on video it appears to be the usual celebration you would see on the football pitch.

Their faces merely look to have collided accidentally.

Ronaldo's girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez uploaded a photo of her man with a crown on his head celebrating the victory in tribute of his two-goal salvo.

SARRI DELIGHTED WITH CR7

The 34-year-old has shaken off the knee problems which have bugged him early in the season and on Sunday hit the target for a remarkable seventh Serie A game running.

Speaking after the win, Juve's former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said: "He's succeeded in recovering from the aches and pains and he has been able to train consistently.

"He is in brilliant form physically.

"I think it's a matter of physical condition and mental condition.

"The fact that he is scoring repeatedly means that his self-confidence is at its best right now.

"He is an animal who feeds off goals."

Dybala, who was linked with a sensational transfer to Manchester United in the summer, is coupled up with fellow Argentinian and musician Oriana Sabatini.
