Iraq footballer Ahmed Zero took a dig at Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo by uploading a picture with the Portuguese star and declaring him the ‘second best football player’. Notably, Zero plays for the Iraqi club Al Shorta, and by his latest post for Ronaldo, it seems as if he is a Messi fan.
Both Al Nassr and Al Shorta clashed in the semi-final clash of the ongoing Arab Club Championship, where Ronaldo’s side defeated Shorta to make it to the final of the tournament. The game saw Ronaldo scoring the solitary goal for his side that came with Sadio Mane in the 75th minute.
Zero, who clicked a picture with Ronaldo during the match, posted it on his Instagram and claimed that he is the second-best football player. The Iraqi footballer accompanied it with the caption, "With the second-best player in history." However, this gesture of Zero didn't go well with Ronaldo fans and they criticised the Shorta star for the same.
The 38-year-old scored consecutive games in the Arab Cup Champions. In the games, Ronaldo netted 18 times and three assists in 24 games ever since he became a part of the Al Nassr. In the final of the ongoing championship, Al Nassr will lock horns with Al Hilal on August 12, Saturday.
