Cristiano Ronaldo has been suspended for one match after allegedly making an obscene gesture towards Al Shabab fans after Al Nassr’s 3-2 win, on Sunday.

The Disciplinary and Ethics Committee of the Saudi Football Federation stated that the former Manchester United star would have to pay a fine of 10,000 Saudi riyals to the Saudi Football Federation, and 20,000 riyals to Al Shabab, which will cover the costs of complaint filing fees. Also, the decision is not subject to appeal.

The alleged incident wasn’t captured by television cameras, but it has since then been criticised by former players and commentators. Reportedly, Ronaldo told the committee that the gesture was one of victory in Europe and is common there.

Ronaldo is currently the top-scorer in the Saudi Pro League this season with 22 goals, and opened the scoring vs Al Shabab with a penalty. Ronaldo was in similar controversy in Al Nassr’s pre-season, after a game against Al Hilal, he reportedly grabbed his genitals as fans chanted Messi’s name. In his defence, Al Nassr said that he sustained a groin injury in the match.

Meanwhile after that match, he once again angered fans in a controversial dugout incident, While nearing the tunnel, a fan threw a Al Hilal shawl at Ronaldo, which he held and then pointed at his crotch area, followed by throwing it away.

Ronaldo joined Al Nassr after the 2022 World Cup, after Manchester United terminated his contract after a controversial interview with British broadcaster Piers Morgan. In the interview, Ronaldo criticized the club’s hierarchy and manager Erik ten Hag.
