BREAKING: Saudi lawyer wants Ronaldo deported for 'grabbing genitals' openly

He was later given a red card for the incident.

Nouf bin Ahmed, a Saudi Arabian lawyer, has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo.

He vowed to file a complaint against Ronaldo after the player appeared to grab his genitals while walking off the pitch on Tuesday.

The incident happened after Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr suffered a 2-0 defeat to Odion Ighalo’s Al-Hilal on Tuesday night.
