Cristiano Ronaldo has been told that he is an “angry dude” by one of his Al-Nassr teammates after he had yet another explosive outburst while playing for the Saudi club.
Al-Nassr took on Abha in the King’s Cup quarter-finals at Mrsool Park on Tuesday evening. Starting the game, Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrating figure as he struggled to get into the opponent’s penalty area. The Portuguese star attempted to escape from his own half in the final seconds of the first half, but the referee blew the whistle with 30 seconds left on the clock.
The 38-year-old engaged the referee in a heated argument over the ruling and then kicked the ball away out of fury. The former Real Madrid player’s disobedient gesture towards the referee earned him a yellow card.
In the aftermath of the game Ronaldo took to Instagram with his thoughts on the match.
He wrote: “Good victory team! We move on to the semi-final.”
Good victory team! We move on to the semi-finals!💪🏼

Al-Nassr teammate Anderson Talisca, who was an unused substitute in the clash, dropped a funny comment, lightly mocking Cristiano Ronaldo for losing his cool.
He wrote: “Brabo bixo,” which roughly translates to “angry dude”.
It was the second time that Cristiano Ronaldo had reacted angrily following his move to Al-Nassr. On March 9, he ripped off his captain’s armband and rushed down the tunnel after Al-Nassr lost to title rivals Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League.
