Cristiano Ronaldo refuses runner-up spot! Al-Nassr legend tosses silver medal after Riyadh Cup setback

Cristiano Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, missed a match against Lionel Messi's team due to injury, but later returned for a game against Al-Hilal where his team suffered a defeat.

Cristiano Ronaldo Can Be Seen Throwing His Second Place Medal In The Crowd

The recipient of the Ballon d’Or five times opted out of a potential encounter with long-standing rival Lionel Messi due to injury as Al-Nassr triumphed over Inter Miami 6-0. He later made a comeback in a match against Saudi Pro League adversaries Al-Hilal but endured a 2-0 loss in that game.

Ronaldo displayed frustration in response to taunts from Messi’s supporters during a disappointing team performance against Al-Hilal. He then further aggravated the situation by wiping a scarf against his groin and tossing it back into the stands while heading towards the tunnel.

Additionally, reports reveal that Ronaldo discarded the medal he received for finishing as runners-up in the Riyadh Cup. With numerous Champions League victories under his belt across England, Spain, and Italy, CR7 is accustomed to nothing but first place.

Ronaldo’s focus is now shifting back to competitive fixtures as Al-Nassr prepares for the continuation of AFC Champions League and Saudi Pro League competitions. The Portuguese currently leads the Golden Boot race in the Saudi top-flight this season, boasting 20 goals, and held the title of world-leading top scorer in 2023 with 54 goals for both club and country.
