Ronaldo Annoying Al-Nassr Players? Teammate Responds!

Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to shove a scarf down his pants after Al Nassr’s defeat to Al Hilal on Thursday.

An Al Nassr star has responded to claims that Cristiano Ronaldo is an annoying teammate when the team is losing.

Full-back Alex Telles has now played with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at Manchester United and now in the Saudi Pro League.

The Brazilian full-back was asked if Ronaldo becomes annoying whenever the team does not win, with his body language often criticised on the field.

“He is a born captain and leader, everyone knows his way of dealing with football, due to his professionalism,” Telles told Sapo Desporto.

“And the good thing about that is that he is a positive leader, always pushing the team for the positive, he never lets the team throw in the towel. We use that as an example, he is very influential in our team, for us he is an asset.”

“Cristiano Ronaldo was a very important part of my coming here. We exchanged messages beforehand. My agent was involved. But obviously, when it comes to the legend Cristiano Ronaldo, the greatness he has clearly made it easier for me to come. We talked a lot. 

“He told me what the club was like and that he was looking forward to me coming. I’m happy to have a player and human being like him (alongside me), with all his dedication for me to come here. So all this effort I make for myself is also for him, for Al-Nassr and for all the players who are here.”
