Cristiano Ronaldo unfortunately did not get a lot of attention last night. He played in the round of 16 of the Saudi Arabian Cup against the club coached by Steven Gerrard, Al-Ettifaq. After several refereeing decisions that the Portuguese star considered bad (his team’s goal was disallowed due to offside and his teammate Talisca received a red card), Cristiano Ronaldo did not hesitate to point out the referee point the finger and make the gesture of change to demand its replacement, affirms The Mirror.

This gesture could well have earned a second yellow card synonymous with exclusion for the Portuguese player who had already been warned in the first half. Surprisingly, he did not receive a second yellow card. The former Ballon d’Or was also irritated by the chanting of opposing supporters who chanted the name “Messi” just after the Argentine player’s eighth Ballon d’Or coronation. The Al-Nassr player had also recently reacted on Instagram below a post which claimed that Messi only deserved 5 of his golden balls. A rivalry which still does not seem to have dissipated over time for the former Real Madrid star…
