Footage of Cristiano Ronaldo reacting to the Al Nassr goal while on a bike in the dressing room has emerged

Cristiano Ronaldo watched part of Al Nassr’s 2-0 win over Al Ta’ee while on an exercise bike in the club’s dressing room.

Ronaldo was inside Mrsool Park for the match, originally scheduled for Thursday, before adverse weather conditions affected the stadium’s electricity.

He watched the first half in a VIP box, but wanted a quick workout after halftime. Anderson Talisca scored a goal in each half to secure the win, with Ronaldo particularly enjoying his second. Check it out below.

It ended up being a fairly easy goal for Talisca, who is the Saudi Pro League’s top scorer with 11 goals this season.

David Ospina lofted the ball up for the 28-year-old, who only needed to take two touches to get into the Al Ta’ee box.

He evaded the defender’s challenge before slipping past the keeper with ease.

Watching in the dressing room, with his shirt on for some reason, Ronaldo applauded the finish while others around him jumped up and down.

The video on Al Nassr’s official Twitter page has a staggering 121,000 likes and 4.9 million views since it was posted.

If you thought Ronaldo fever was about to die in Saudi Arabia, we have news for you.

Al Nassr are now four points clear at the top of the league ahead of Al Shabab. They have a game in hand so could reduce the margin to one point, although Ronaldo’s eventual debut is likely to see Al Nassr win the title comfortably.

The 37-year-old scored 24 goals in all competitions for United last season, although the figure was three this term before he quit in November.

Ronaldo declared on Tuesday that his career in Europe is “over” after achieving everything he set out to do over a 20-year period.

“For me, this is a great opportunity not only in football, but also to change the mentality of the new generation,” he told reporters at the unveiling.

“As nobody knows, but I can say now, I had many opportunities in Europe, many clubs in Brazil, in Australia, in the United States and even in Portugal.

“Many clubs tried to sign me, but I gave my word to this club for the opportunity to develop not only football but also the other part of this wonderful country.

“And for me this is a good challenge. I know what I want and of course I know what I don’t want too, so for me it’s a good chance to change [and] to help with my knowledge and my experience.”
