Cristiano Ronaldo shoved a member of Al-Khaleej backroom staff when he attempted to take a selfie with the Portuguese after Al- Nassr once again dropped points.
Al Nassr drew 1-1 with Al-Khaleej and after the encounter, Ronaldo was informed about requests from players and staff of the opposition for his shirt.
The former Juventus attacker ended up offering it to one player but he didn’t give the best of reactions when a member of the Al-Khaleej backroom staff attempted to take a selfie with him.
Cristiano Ronaldo ended up pushing the Al-Khaleej backroom staff following a frustrating evening for Al-Nassr with the outcome of the game denting their ambitions of winning the Pro League.
The ex-Manchester United forward had a goal chalked off for offside during the match and his team found themselves five points off league leaders Al-Ittihad.
Relegation-threatened Al-Khaleej went into the lead via a goal from Fabio Martins after only four minutes played before Alvaro Gonzalez equalized for Al-Nassr in the 17th minute.
Saudi Arabian giants Al-Nassr face Al-Ta’ee next away from home on the 16th of May as the Pro League nears its expiration.
Since joining Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 12 goals in 13 league games, although reports indicate that the five-time UEFA Champions League winner is looking to exit his new club.
The occurrence on Monday was another heated moment in what has been a wishy-washy first few months for Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo penned a staggering £172 million a year deal to play in Saudi Arabia after leaving Manchester United following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
Reports as earlier highlighted however suggest that the Portuguese is already planning on leaving Al Nassr, in spite of being contracted till the end of 2025.
In April, Cristiano Ronaldo was accused of being ill-mannered after he reacted angrily to being denied a penalty in a 4-0 victory over Al-Raed.
The Portuguese reacted by throwing his arms up in frustration and bashing the center referee, Mohammed Al Hoaish, showing additional anger after a VAR review failed to rescind the decision.
It has been reported that Ronaldo could be heading back to Real Madrid with the club said to be willing to offer Ronaldo a non-playing role as an ambassador.
Based on reports from Spanish media outlet El Nacional, Real Madrid said: “Florentino Perez has guaranteed that Ronaldo will not lack work at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“But, obviously, he wouldn’t do it to be a player, because he considers that it is a cycle that should be considered closed.”
Although another report claim Florentino Perez has moved to dismiss the speculation, pointing at the age of the club great.
It’s however uncertain if the speculation that was debunked was for his role as a player and not as an ambassador of the club.
The football world could see the Cristiano Ronaldo V Lionel Messi rivalry in the next few months
Should Cristiano Ronaldo remain in Saudi Arabia, fans could see the Messi-Ronaldo rivalry possibly for one last time as Lionel Messi is considering a £320million-a-year deal from Al-Hilal.
The Argentine is set to exit Paris Saint-Germain this summer and could be joined at Al-Hilal by ex-Barcelona team-mates Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets.
It was established earlier in May that the 2022 FIFA World Cup winner would be exiting Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, during the time he took an unapproved trip to Saudi Arabia.
Football fans witnessed the Messi and Ronaldo rivalry up-close during their time at Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively for nine seasons and certainly it was explosive.
