Cristiano Ronaldo had a heated exchange with the referee during Al-Nassr's game against Al Etiffaq. Cristiano Ronaldo had a heated exchange with the referee during Al-Nassr's game against Al Etiffaq.

Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly signalled for a substitution of the centre referee during Al-Nassr's King Cup match against Al-Ettifaq on Tuesday, October 31.

The veteran forward has maintained an outstanding performance throughout the 2023-2024 season, although his recent goal-scoring streak was halted over the weekend when his team triumphed over Al Feiha.

Eager to resume his scoring success, this time in the King Cup, the 38-year-old, supported by Al-Nassr's formidable attacking line-up featuring Sadio Mane, Otavio, and Anderson Talisca, made relentless efforts to break the deadlock from the onset of the match.

In registering his displeasure with the level of officiating, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus ace signalled for the official to be subbed off, as cited by GOAL.
