Fans Lift Ronaldo’s Spirits with “Siu” Chants as He Serves Suspension

Al Nassr ended up with a 4-4 tie against Al Hazm in Riyadh this Thursday. This draw puts them six points behind the league leaders, Al Hilal, who also have an additional game to play. Ronaldo felt powerfully absent in this match following his suspension from a previous game.

Ronaldo was sidelined after allegedly making an inappropriate gesture towards Al Shabab’s fans following a 3-2 victory. This gesture occurred after the match’s conclusion, where Ronaldo seemed to respond to chants from the crowd with a controversial motion.

Despite his suspension, Al Nassr’s supporters showed unwavering support for Ronaldo during the match against Al Hazm. In the seventh minute, fans started chanting ‘Siu,’ echoing Ronaldo’s signature celebration, which visibly moved him, prompting him to acknowledge their support with a wave.

The game saw a flurry of goals; Talisca scored a penalty for Al Nassr, followed by an equalizer from Al Hazm’s Ahmad Al Mhemaid. Talisca put Al Nassr ahead again, only for Toze to level the score again. Talisca’s third goal was followed by an equalizer from Faiz Selemani, and a late goal from Sadio Mane seemed to seal the win for Al Nassr, only for Paulo Ricardo to score a final equalizer in injury time.

Furthermore, Ronaldo has been fined by the Saudi Football Federation’s Disciplinary and Ethics Committee, which imposed a fine on him due to the incident with Al Shabab fans. Ronaldo is required to pay 10,000 Saudi riyals to the Federation and an additional 20,000 riyals to Al Shabab. This decision is final and cannot be appealed.

The controversial gesture that led to Ronaldo’s suspension was not televised but has drawn criticism from various quarters. Ronaldo has defended his actions to the committee, stating that such gestures are everyday victory celebrations in Europe.
