Cristiano Ronaldo pushes spectator and swears at official after being denied two penalties

Cristiano Ronaldo pushes spectator and swears at official after being denied two penalties

Cristiano Ronaldo was absolutely livid in Al Nassr's game against Shabab Al Ahli.

Cristiano Ronaldo was absolutely seething after being denied two penalties in Al Nassr's game against Shabab Al Ahli.

Al Nassr went 1-0 up in the Asian Champions League play-off through Anderson Talisca, who has been linked with a move back to former club Besiktas.

A brace from Yahya Al Ghassani put the United Arab Emirates side 2-1 up, with the game completely turned on its head.

But Al Nassr threw everything at their opponents and levelled courtesy of Sultan Al Ghannam in the 88th minute, before Talisca bagged a 95th minute winner.

Former Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic completed the scoring by making it 4-2 in the seventh minute of added time.

Ronaldo, however, hit headlines for having quite the strop at half-time during the clash.


In the first half he had an acrobatic effort blocked by a flailing arm only for no penalty to be awarded, while he felt as though he should have had another spot-kick having been blocked in the area.

As he has been seen doing before in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo was furious as he walked down the tunnel. Having already screamed at the referee on the pitch, he appeared to tell an official to "wake up" and shouted "F***ing hell!" before shoving a spectator who was trying to take a selfie with him.


Ronaldo has scored 20 goals in 26 since moving to Saudi Arabia and being the catalyst for a plethora of high-profile players to make the switch.

Interestingly, Talisca, despite being the hero, could actually be cut from the club's Asian Champions League squad according to reports.

The Asian Confederation only allows five players born outside of the continent to play in the Asian Champions League.

Captain and talisman Ronaldo is of course one, while the club also drafted in Sadio Mane, Seko Fofana, Marcelo Brozovic and Alex Telles in a busy transfer window.

Talisca has hit 46 goals since joining from Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande in 2021 but Sport say he may have his contract terminated in order to comply to the regulations.
