Cristiano Ronaldo, who was recently announced as the new player of Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia, was not allowed to play the first 2 games of the season due to the suspension he received in England.
This Thursday, Al-Nassr has a league match against Al Ta’ee, and all the seats in the stadium were already bought by the fans preparing to watch the striker who is considered the first player in the world.
According to Mail Online, the player has been suspended for two games while in England, and he must first clear them before he can continue.
On November 17 last year, the British Football Association banned Ronaldo for 2 games and fined him 50,000 dollars. He was found guilty of improper and violent conduct after he smashed an Everton fan’s phone from his hand after United lost a match at Goodison Park last April.
He slapped the hand of Jacob Harding as he stormed down the tunnel, damaging the boy’s phone. His mother Sarah Kelly said her son’s hand was also bruised by Ronaldo.
The Independent FA panel was chaired by Christopher Quinlan KC and it found Ronaldo guilty of a deliberate and forceful slap down’ which was ‘a petulant act.’
The punishments came after an investigation into the abuse Ronaldo did to an Everton fan on his way out of the pitch when Everton hosted Manchester United in April last year.
