The Portuguese superstar, who opened the scoring for the Knights of Nadj in the 21st minute of the clash by converting a penalty, very soon would receive the anger of the Al Shabab fans attending to the Al Shabab FC Stadium, who as it has started to be common in Arabia, started to chant 'Messi, Messi, Messi' to Cristiano Ronaldo.

This behavior has become a regular action of the Al Nassr’s rival fans, who everytime Cristiano Ronaldo’s side plays as a visitor, are doing that to distract and annoy the Portuguese idol, who got enraged again and left a controversial gesture on the pitch.

In this sense, Cristiano Ronaldo did not hesitate and responded to those cheers with some controversial gestures after scoring the first goal of the match, which according to the Saudi Press has been reported by the Disciplinary Council of the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, which would have opened an investigation into Cristiano Ronaldo for an apparent obscene gesture to the rival stands when he scored the Al Shabab penalty goal as it can be seen in the images captured by the cameras during the game.

What did Cristiano Ronaldo do?

In a clip of the action that went viral on the social media, the Portuguese idol appears putting his hand to his ear when the home fans shouted “Messi, Messi” and gesturing with his arms on his body, and it remains to be seen if this celebratory gesture by the Portuguese is considered obscene by the Saudi Football Federation. This wouldn’t be the first time for CR7 making headlines in the country for this reason, as he has already been accused of ‘accomodating’ in his farewell during Al Nassr’s last game against Al Hilal, when he grabbed a shirt of the rival and put him under his pants to infuriate the Al Hilal fans. The idol, undoubtedly, is loved and hated all over the world, and Saudi football isn’t an exception.
