WATCH: Al-Ittihad fans taunt Cristiano Ronaldo with Lionel Messi chants

  • Ronaldo taunted by Al-Ittihad fans
  • Supporters chanted for Messi
  • Al-Nassr lost semi-final 3-1

WHAT HAPPENED? Upon arriving to the King Fahd International Stadium for a Saudi Super Cup clash against Al-Ittihad, Al-Nassr's new forward received a rather surprising reaction from the home crowd. Ronaldo, who has been treated like a king since making the big-money move to the Middle East, was greeted by chants for his rival Messi.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ronaldo played against Messi last week in a friendly and is now settling into domestic action with Al-Nassr following his post-World Cup transfer.

WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO? CR7 will be in action again next Friday against Al Fateh in the Saudi Pro League.
