Al Nassr coach comments on Ronaldo's red card, stating that he performed in the presence of the referee.

Al-Nassr coach Luís Castro has slammed Al-Hilal player Ali Al-Bulayhi and the referee over Cristiano Ronaldo’s red card.

Al-Nassr suffered a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Al-Hilal in the semi-final of the Saudi Super Cup.

Ronaldo received a straight red card in the 86th minute of the match.

Salem Aldawsari opened the scoring for Al-Hilal in the 61st minute and 11 minutes later Brazilian forward Malcom made it two.

He engaged in a heated argument with the referee after his goal was disallowed by VAR for offside.

Just minutes before the final whistle, Senegalese forward Sadio Mane netted the sole goal (90+9) for the Knights of Najd.

Speaking after the game Castro addressed the incident involving Ronaldo, saying, “Ali Al-Bulayhi acted in front of the referee and Ronaldo.

“Today it was a play by the opposition player and the referee gave Ronaldo red, but the mouse did not call the referee.

“I will not talk about the shot of the legend Cristiano Ronaldo because I do not see that he did anything that deserved to be expelled.
