  • Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure after watching his side slip to a goalless draw
  • The veteran forward failed to add to his tally as Al-Feiha held Al-Nassr to a stalemate
  • Up next for Ronaldo and his teammates is a tantalising encounter with rivals Al-Hilal on Tuesday, April 18

Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly angry after his side, Al-Nassr, shared the spoils with Al-Feiha in the Saudi Pro League on Sunday evening.

The 38-year-old, who had scored three goals in his last two games for Al-Nassr, was kept at bay by a water-tight Al-Feiha defence.

Despite bossing the possession, Ronaldo's Al-Nassr could only muster three shots on target.

The result further reduces their chances of winning the Saudi Pro League, as Al-Ittihad stretched their lead to three points with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Al-Wehda.

With this in mind, Ronaldo - the club's second-highest scorer this season - cut a frustrated figure following the end of the game as he stormed down the tunnel while profoundly expressing his displeasure with angry gestures, GOAL reports.

He would hope the setback against Al-Feiha will be the final blip as his club hunts down their fiercest rival, who are on a five-game winning run in the Saudi top flight.

Here is the video:

Ronaldo picks Mourinho over Fergie

Ronaldo has played for some of the greatest football coaches in history, including Jose Mourinho, who he might reunite with after the Special One received a reported £60 million per year offer to move to Saudi Arabia, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Portuguese veteran also shares a father-son relationship with former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. The Scottish legend brought him into the limelight when he signed him to Old Trafford.

However, the current Al-Nassr captain opted for his compatriot, Mourinho, when speaking about the best manager he had ever worked with.

Ronaldo picked as GOAT

Meanwhile, Sports Brief previously reported on Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka weighing in on the never-ending discussion of who is better between Lionel Messi and Ronaldo.

The debate between the mercurial Argentine playmaker and the Portuguese phenomenon has dominated the minds of football fans across the globe for the past decade at least.

In an online question-and-answer session, the 30-year-old Xhaka disclosed his unflinching admiration for Ronaldo, choosing the Al-Nassr captain ahead of his long-time rival.
