Is Cristiano Ronaldo going to get deported from Saudi Arabia for his reaction?
Cristiano Ronaldo was seeing grabbing his down-belows, something which is seen as an offence in the country.
Things could get Messi for Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia. Nouf bin Ahmed, a lawyer, teacher and advisor, who also works with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, has announced on Twitter that she will present a petition to the Public Ministry of Saudi Arabia for the arrest and deportation of Cristiano Ronaldo for grabbing his genitals after hearing Messi’s name chanted by fans after Al Nassr lost to Al Ittihad in the Riyadh derby.
“I don’t follow sport. Even if the crowd provoked Ronaldo, he didn’t know how to react. Cristiano’s behaviour is a crime. An indecent public act, which is one of the crimes that allows for arrest and deportation if committed by a foreigner. We will present a petition to the Public Ministry regarding the issue”, said a tweet from the lawyer.
The act from the footballer has caused a huge stir online. According to sources quizzed by commentator Mohamed al Anzi, the Portuguese player made the gesture because “he received a knock during the game” in the genitals, according to EFE.
The lawyer has also spoken about the incident from Ronaldo in which he appears to grab Gustavo Cuéllar around the neck from behind: “What we saw in the Al Nassr game, specifically, what Cristiano did was a minor crime. The attack from Cristiano on an Al Hilal player is not related to what goes on in a sporting context of competitiveness. It’s worth pointing out that Cristiano is known for his calmness, what is the reason for the change in his behaviour and his tendency to be aggressive after joining Al Nassr?”
The dab, a “damaging influence of young people”
The iconic celebration of Pogba and Lingard is punished in Saudi Arabia due to its link with drugs. A player for Al Nojoom was not aware of the law and celebrated in such a way in a cup game against Al Wahda as one of his teammates went to give him a high-five. The National Committee for the fight against drugs of the Interior Minister of Saudi Arabia had warned that the dab was a “damaging influence of young people”, according to Inquisitr.
