Despite having broken up with Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo almost two months ago, Irina Shayk still can't seem to resist taking a dig at her ex-boyfriend.

The Russian supermodel has claimed in an interview that she felt 'ugly standing next to the wrong man' — a thinly-veiled reference to Ronaldo, according to the Daily Mail.

"My ideal man is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women. I don't believe in men who make us feel unhappy, because they're boys not men," the 29-year-old told Spanish magazine Hola.

She added: "I thought I had once found the ideal man but it didn't turn out that way." "I think a woman feels ugly when she's got the wrong man at her side. I've felt ugly and insecure."

This is not the first time Shayk has taken a jibe at her ex-boyfriend of five years since their break-up in January.

A month back, she had told E! News: "What I'm looking for in a man is — I think I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women. I think this is (the) most important thing in (a) man."

Apart from a statement announcing their break-up, the Real Madrid ace has kept mum on the split. The statement, which sought to convey that the break-up was amicable, read: "After dating for five years, my relationship with Irina Shayk has come to an end. We believed it would be best for both of us to take this step now. I wish Irina the greatest happiness."
