Cristiano Ronaldo has been dropped from Al Nassr’s team to face Al Tai on Friday after serving the first part of a two-game suspension from the English Football Association.
The suspension was imposed in November in connection with an incident in the Premier League game between Everton and Manchester United last season. Ronaldo slapped a phone out of the hand of a 14-year-old Everton fan as he stormed off after the Red Devils lost 1-0 at Goodison Park.
Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo was unveiled by Al Nassr on Tuesday after signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Saudi Arabian club.
After Ronaldo’s move was confirmed, it was reported that Al Nassr was considering defying the ban and was ready to pay any fine FIFA imposed.
However, the 37-year-old was not in head coach Rudi Garcia’s team on Friday, suggesting Ronaldo will have to wait at least until January 22 to bow for the club in the home game against Al Ettifaq.
