Cristiano Ronaldo heading towards unwanted career first after Al Nassr defeat

Cristiano Ronaldo heading towards unwanted career first after Al Nassr defeat

Cristiano Ronaldo's Al Nassr lost to Al Wehda in the King Cup of Champions semi-final on Sunday and he was furious.

Cristiano Ronaldo could be heading towards an unwanted first in his 21-year career at the top.

Ronaldo's Al Nassr were knocked out of the King Cup of Champions in the semi-finals by 10-man Al Wehda on Sunday.

In the previous fixture between the two sides, Ronaldo smashed in four goals just two months ago in a comprehensive 4-0 victory.

However, they lost 1-0 at the KSU Stadium, with Jean-David Beauguel scoring the only goal of the game in the 23rd minute.

Not for the first time, Ronaldo was absolutely furious and was spotted venting at his own bench at half-time as his frustrations got the better of him again.

The 38-year-old hit the bar late on but despite Abdullah Al-Hafith’s red card just after half-time, 13th placed Al Wehda held on to set up a showdown in the final with Al Hilal.

The loss, coupled with defeats in Riyadh Super Cup and the Saudi Super Cup means Ronaldo might just end up making some unfortunate history.

He could well end the season without lifting any silverware, which would follow up the 2021/22 season with Manchester United, who finished the campaign trophyless and in sixth place.

Since his debut in 2003 with Sporting CP, the former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar has never gone back-to-back seasons without a trophy.

His only chance to get his hands on a title is in the Saudi Pro League, where Al Nassr are currently in second place.

They trail league leaders Al Ittihad by three points but have also played a game more than their title rivals.

But Al Nassr recently parted company with manager Rudi Garcia and appointed Dinko Jelicic, who had been coaching the club's Under 19 side.

After joining in a eye-watering £175 million-a-year free transfer following the mutual termination of his United contract, Ronaldo has scored 11 goals in 14 games.
