Goal-hungry Ronaldo rejects penalty, shocks referee
Although Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his rich goal-scoring record, the Portuguese forward shocked many yesterday when he convinced the referee not to award him a penalty in Al Nasr’s goalless draw against Persepolis in the Asian Champions League.
Al Nasr were awarded a penalty within two minutes of kick-off by Chinese referee Ma Ning, but Ronaldo who was seemingly brought down quickly ran to the match official to argue against the decision.
With a check on the pitchside monitor, Ning eventually withdraw the penalty call.
