Cristiano Ronaldo found himself sidelined after a controversial interaction with fans following Al Nassr’s recent match in the Saudi Pro League. The seasoned footballer faced accusations of making an obscene gesture towards heckling spectators, prompting swift action from the Disciplinary and Ethics Committee of the Saudi Arabia Football Federation (SAFF).

In the aftermath of Al Nassr’s 3-2 victory over Al-Shabab, videos circulating on social media captured Ronaldo responding to chants of “Messi” with a hand motion near his groin. The disciplinary committee wasted no time in imposing a one-match suspension, with the decision deemed irrevocable.

Moreover, Ronaldo was slapped with a fine totaling approximately $5,333 (20,000 Saudi Riyals) to reimburse Al-Shabab for the expenses associated with filing the complaint, in addition to half of that amount directed towards the federation.

Despite the disciplinary action, Ronaldo maintained his focus, as evidenced by a social media post showcasing his dedication to training: “Can’t stop,” he captioned alongside a picture of him working out.
