Cristiano Ronaldo launches into defiant five-word message to fans after Lionel Messi chants in Al-Nassr loss

CRISTIANO RONALDO did not react well to the trolling he received from Al-Hilal fans last night.

The Portuguese forward was playing in the final of the Riyadh Season Cup – a tournament which had also featured Lionel Messi‘s Inter Miami.

The spectacle, put on by Saudi sports minister Turki Al-Sheikh got off to a bizarre start when WWE’s the Undertaker walked onto the field for a pre-match trophy presentation.

Ronaldo was seen laughing at the bizarre spectacle as the Undertaker’s funereal theme music blasted from the speakers.

Ronaldo was powerless to stop his side from losing 2-0 to Al-Hilal, who also sit top of the Saudi league, leading Al-Nassr by seven points.

The star reacted angrily as Al-Hilal fans repeatedly chanted for Messi throughout the game.

Footage showed Ronaldo pointing angrily to the ground and he appeared to say: “I’m here, Messi is not.”

His outburst could have been referencing the fact that he is playing in Saudi, or the fact that Al-Nassr beat Inter-Miami 6-0 to reach the final of the exhibition tournament.

Ronaldo was absent from that game, however, and watched on from the stands while nursing a hamstring injury.

He did, however, appear to delight in watching his team triumph over Messi’s side as he watched on with a grin.


But that smile was nowhere to be seen yesterday when he went to collect his runners-up medal.

The Al-Nassr captain angrily pushed an official aside as he blocked his way on the way to the presentation.

The petulance did not stop there, however, as he had a final burst of anger when walking off the pitch.

A fan threw an Al-Hilal jersey at the forward, which he used to wipe his crotch before throwing it aside to show his disgust at losing the exhibition final.

His partner Georgina Rodriguez was cheering Ronaldo on from the stands with the couple’s five kids, on a night to forget for the Ronaldos.
