The recent violent ejection of “superstar” Cristiano Ronaldo

The recent violent ejection of “superstar” Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nasr) from the Saudi Arabian Professional League has been a hot topic of discussion. Ronaldo was shown a red card for indiscretions unbecoming of his fame. British media criticized Ronaldo, comparing him to Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) in similar situations.

British sports media outlet The Athletic criticized Ronaldo on Tuesday (KST), saying, “Ronaldo, what are you doing?” for his out-of-control behavior.

On Sept. 9, Ronaldo played against Al-Hilal in the semifinals of the 2023-2024 Saudi Super Cup at Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia. 바카라사이트 Ronaldo was shown a red card for elbowing an opponent. Alnasr took a knee in a one-on-two.

The incident in question occurred in the 39th minute of the second half. Ronaldo got into a scuffle with opposing center back Ali Al-Bulaihi for a ball that went out of bounds. Ronaldo lost his patience. He struck Al-Boulayhi in the chest with his elbow. Ronaldo even made a punching motion behind the referee’s back, who ordered him to leave the field.

In fact, Al Boulayhi is notorious for playing dirty and getting on the nerves of opposing aces.

As The Athletic notes, “Al-Boulayhi pulled Son Heung-min’s hair at the Asian Cup in January. He faced off against Messi at the World Cup in Qatar, and last December, he mocked Ronaldo,” the article continued.

‘Anyway, while Son Heung-min and Messi took it in stride, Ronaldo opted for violence, elbowing Al-Boulayhi in the chest and swinging his arm again. Al-Boulayhi fell to the ground. Ronaldo was not done after being sent off and pulled his arm back and balled up his fist as if to punch the referee in the back of the head,” the report said, criticizing Ronaldo for his lack of self-control.

‘Chants of Messi, Messi, Messi erupted from the stands,’ The Athletic added. Ronaldo switched into sarcastic mode. He applauded the referee and gave a thumbs-up to the crowd,” mocking Ronaldo’s lackadaisical behavior.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo is likely to finish the season uninvolved. 사설 토토사이트 The club is second in the league, well behind Alhilal with 77 points. Alnasr have just 65 points. In the Asian Champions League, they fell in the quarterfinals. Their last hope, the Super Cup, also ended in the quarterfinals.

Ronaldo has been in fine form of late, scoring hat tricks in his last two games. He has 29 goals in the league this season. But against Al-Hilal, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
