Al Nassr and Cristiano Ronaldo suffered another setback as they crashed out of the King's Cup against the 10-man Al Wehda side on April 24. Al Wehda got a goal from Jean-David Beauguel in the 23rd minute as they went on to win the match over the second-placed Al Nassr 1-0.
The Portuguese great looked visibly frustrated with the Al Nassr coaching staff and the match as he was seen walking off the field shaking his head and lashing out at the support staff. Video of the same is now doing rounds on social media where CR7 is seen reacting furiously towards his own bench at the half-time mark, as well as after the full-time whistle.

The former Real Madrid star missed several chances in this game also, hitting the crossbar in the 82nd minute. Notably, this is not the first time that Ronaldo’s frustration was seen at expanse. Last month, the 38-year-old stormed into the tunnel kicking a water bottle after his team lost 1-0 to Al Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League.
Talking about Al Nassr, the Dinko Jelicic-managed side are second in the league and trail the table toppers Al Ittihad by three points. The hopes for any trophy are getting slimmer by the game as the only two trophies left are the League and the Arab Cup of Champions.
Earlier this month, Al Nassr coach Rudi Garcia was sacked over his relationship with the players and more notably with Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was reportedly unhappy with his tactics and considered him the reason for the underwhelming season. The club is currently without a coach and Jose Mourinho and Luis Enrique have been linked to the role. Al Nassr will next face Al Raed on Friday night and Ronaldo will hope to bring back his goalscoring form to challenge for the league title.
