Al-Nassr reports sold out for tonight’s game, but…
Cristiano Ronaldo will not play at all!
Cristiano Ronaldo should have made his debut for Al-Nassr on Thursday. But this will probably not happen now, because the superstar is blocked for a strange reason.
Cristiano Ronaldo should have made his debut for Al-Nassr on Thursday night.
Al-Nassr sold 28,000 tickets for Thursday night’s home game against Al Ta’ee. The stadium will be completely sold out for the first time this season. They all want to see the announced debut of their new superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (37). But this will probably not happen now.
As the “Daily Mail” writes, CR7 brings a curious ban from the Premier League. The reason: On October 9, Ronaldo will meet Everton away with Manchester United. After the game, a 14-year-old Everton fan got angry when Ronaldo slapped his phone out of his hand.

Asian federation has to take suspension
A month later he was fined 57,000 euros by the English Football Association for the action and banned for two games. The problem: Shortly thereafter, Ronaldo fell out with ManUtd coach Erik ten Haag and terminated his contract with the Red Devils before the World Cup. He doesn’t serve a game from the suspension.
Fifa regulations state that any disciplinary penalty of up to four games that has been imposed by an association and has not yet been served must be taken over by the new association after the transfer.
Still home debut
Ronaldo is therefore likely to miss not only Thursday’s game against Al Ta’ee, but also Saturday’s away game against al-Shabab.
Al-Nassr fans will probably be able to marvel at their new hero in the stadium on January 21st. Then Al-Nassr meets Al-Ettifaq at home and Ronaldo’s suspension should be up. (bjl)
