Al Nassr defeated Abha by 3 goals to 1 in their Saudi Arabian Professional League clash. While Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score nor assist in the game, ESPN shared a video showing the moment the Portuguese striker received a yellow card for a very bad character on the pitch.
According to the video, while Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates launched a counterattack and with the added extra time gone, the referee signaled the end of the first half.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who was in possession of the ball after dribbling an opposition player, picked up the ball and angrily kicked it away and the referee gave him a yellow card for breaking the rule of the game.
This habit is not expected from a high profile footballer like Cristiano Ronaldo. It is very poor of him to show off such character while his team were leading comfortably in the first half.
The referee was acting based on the rules of the game and because the time has elapsed, he has the right to blow the halftime whistle. The character portrayed by the 38 year old striker shows that he is not disciplined and could allow his emotions get hold of him because he didn’t score a goal even if his team is leading.
