Cristiano Ronaldo has been in a ‘irrelevant crisis’ this season. After being eliminated from the cup competition, he was seen shouting at the manager, causing controversy.
Ronaldo’s team, Al Nasr, lost 0-1 to Al Wahda in the Saudi Champions Cup held on the 25th (Korean time). In the 23rd minute of the first half, Al-Nassr allowed the opening goal to striker Jean-David Buegel and was dragged away. In the 8th minute of the second half, opponent center back Abdullah Al Hafeet was sent off and even gained a numerical advantage, but failed to score and was eliminated from the tournament.
Ronaldo also started this day and played full-time, but failed to score. He attempted a total of 6 shots, one of which hit the post and came out. Although he played a decent role, creating opportunities twice and successfully dribbling twice, he could not prevent the team from losing.
Ronaldo’s expression after the match was serious. Shaking his head, he exited the field and even expressed his displeasure as he got closer to the coaching staff. Even shouting at the director was captured on camera.
It is clear why Ronaldo was disappointed. This is because Al-Nasr is more likely to finish this season without a tie. Al-Nasr lost 0-2 to Al-Hilal in the last round, putting them away from winning the league title. In first place is Al Ittihad, who have played one game less than Al Nasr, and are three points ahead. Matching the number of games can lead to a 6 point difference. In addition, even in the cup competition where there was a possibility of winning, it did not exceed the semifinals.
Ronaldo moved to Al Nasr after the World Cup in Qatar last year and entered the Saudi stage. After his transfer, he scored 11 goals and 2 assists in 11 matches in the Saudi League. However, as the scoring streak has recently stopped, the team is also starting to lose momentum. Al-Nasr lost his back as he went without a win in three games.스포츠토토
It is difficult for Ronaldo to win individual awards. There is a wide gap with Odion Ighalo, the top scorer, by 7 goals. Teammate Anderson Talisca is also second with 16 goals. You have to show ‘running’ in the remaining games to compete for the top scorer.
