Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the spotlight in Saudi Arabia. Not because of his soccer skills this time, but because of an “obscene gesture. The Portuguese star soccer player allegedly made this after “Messi” was frequently shouted at him.

The Saudi federation has launched an investigation into his behavior.

Images on social media show the 39-year-old Ronaldo provoking his fans. First, he puts a hand behind his ear and then makes a gesture toward the stands with his right hand. The name of his rival Messi was allegedly shouted frequently.

This incident happened around the match between Al Nassr, Ronaldo’s club, and Al Shabab. Al Nassr won 3-2 and Ronaldo scored the opening goal from a penalty kick.


Ronaldo stands out more often with his behavior

The Portuguese striker stands out more often with his behavior in Saudi Arabia. Just a few weeks ago, a video appeared online in which the star player pulled an opponent’s scarf past his crotch in the catacombs.

But Ronaldo is not only striking with negative behavior in the Middle East. Recently, the striker confessed to a schwalbe in a sporting mood, after which the awarded penalty kick was still revoked.
