Shocking video of Portuguese icon Cristiano Ronaldo shoving a Al Khaleej staff member away while leaving the pitch post-game for asking for a selfie has been going viral
Ronaldo was leaving the pitch following Al-Nassr’s 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened visitors Al- Khaleej.
In the match, Al-Khaleej took the lead just four minutes into play via Fabio Martins. And although former Marseille and Villarreal defender Alvaro Gonzalez equalised for Al-Nassr in the 17 minute, no other player managed to capitalize on the results.

Cristiano Ronaldo caught pushing opposition coach who asked for selfie post-match
Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly distraught as he was seen pushing away the opposition coach who came to him asking for a selfie post-match. The incident happened during his side’s most recent league match against Al-Khaleej.
The match ended in a draw with a 1-1 score. Although Ronaldo managed to score a goal in that match, it was disallowed. To me things more worse, his side were playing against lowly opponents who are looking to avoid relegation. Moreover, the draw meant Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr are now five points behind league leaders Al-Ittihad.
All these factors made Ronaldo frustrated and he decided to te it out on an opposition coach who simply wanted a selfie with him after the match. So far, Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in 13 Saudi Pro League appearances. However, this hasn’t been enough to help them secure the top spot.
Is Ronaldo looking for a return to Madrid?
Several reports have been claiming that Ronaldo is looking for a return to Madrid. Reports indicate that the Portuguese icon wants to leave the Kingdom after just six months. Even his partner Georgina Rodriguez is reportedly craving for a return to Madrid.
However, Spanish outlet El Nacional claimed that Madrid club president Florentino Perez would only be willing to accommodate Ronaldo for a non-playing role.
Brazilian legend Rivaldo also shared his views about Ronaldo’s situation. He revealed that Ronaldo may have been “fooled” by his mouthwatering contract offered in Saudi Arabia.
He told reporters:
“I understand that sometimes the players are fooled by the big contract they sign in Saudi Arabia, but then life there is more closed and football is not always as easy as expected.
“So, you may be going through a phase of some disappointment and even reflection. If the money you’re getting mes up for the not-so-happy life you’re living right now.
