Cristiano Ronaldo receives two-match ban for elbow incident

Cristiano Ronaldo’s outburst during Al-Nassr’s Super Cup semi-final last week has landed him a two-match ban.

In the 86th minute of the match against Al-Hilal, Ronaldo was shown a red card for elbowing defender Ali Al-Bulaihi. The incident sparked controversy, with some arguing that the red card was harsh while others defended the referee’s decision.

Ronaldo was visibly frustrated with the decision and was seen arguing with the referee as he left the pitch. He also appeared to make a threatening gesture towards the official.

Despite the controversy, the Saudi Arabian Football Federation has decided to uphold the red card and impose a two-match ban on Ronaldo. This means that he will miss Al-Nassr’s next two league matches.

Some fans have argued that Ronaldo should have received a heavier punishment for his actions. However, the two-match ban is in line with the standard penalty for a red card in Saudi Arabian football.
