Cristiano Ronaldo rejected the advances of an Al-Khaleej member of staff who tried to take a selfie with him after Al-Nassr were held to a draw. It was another frustrating day at the office for the Portuguese icon, who saw his team draw 1-1.
And after the final whistle, there was a rather bizarre moment involving the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star as he walked towards the tunnel.
A member of the Al-Khaleej staff tried to halt his progress to the dressing rooms, as he was starstruck by Ronaldo. In unusual scenes, he tried to get a selfie with the Portuguese ace but he wasn’t having any of it.
Instead of making time for him, Ronaldo made it clear he wasn’t in the mood for a picture as his frustrations from the draw boiled over.
It hasn’t been the best of times in recent weeks for Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia following his eye-watering move from Man Utd. Al-Nassr now find themselves two points behind leaders Al-Ittihad who have a match in hand in the Saudi Pro League.
Next up for Ronaldo and Al-Nassr is a contest against Al-Ta’ee next Tuesday evening. The Portuguese star’s side will fancy their chances against a side languishing down in seventh.
Ronaldo could be joined in Saudi Arabia by his great rival Lionel Messi soon. The Argentine legend has reportedly agreed a deal to join Al-Hilal.
Spanish outlet El Chiringuito TV have reported Messi has agreed to sign for Al-Hilal, with former Barcelona team-mates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba set to join him in Riyadh.
