Japanese Governor Asked to Resign for Skipping Meeting to Watch Ronaldo’s Match
- Kengo Oishi is facing backlash for watching Cristiano Ronaldo play
- The Japanese governor skipped an important national meeting for the match
- Ronaldo joined Al Nassr in 2021 and has gained more supporters globally
Many in Japan are demanding the resignation of Kengo Oishi because of his reported abuse of power after ditching a vital government meeting to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play.
The governor of Nagasaki Prefecture is facing heavy criticism back home after it emerged he was present in Osaka to witness Paris Saint-Germain’s friendly against Al Nassr on June 25.
According to Sportskeeda, the Nagasaki governor purchased the ticket with his own money. However, his travel and accommodation costs were covered by the prefectural government.
Angry citizens are now calling for Kengo Oishi to resign his position for the act after the information came to light. Still, he has also received support from others who claim he was acting in his professional capacity to promote Nagasaki.
Oishi participated in the post-match event, in which Ronaldo was also present and invited the Al Nassr forward for a meeting but did not receive an official response.
Ronaldo reaches new milestone with Al-Nassr
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo marked the 1,200th professional match of his professional career by scoring one goal and assisting another for Al-Nassr in a 4-1 win over Al-Riyadh, BBC reports.
The 38-year-old tapped in Sadio Mane's cross and later set up team-mate Otavio before Talisca netted a brace to seal the comfortable win for the Arab Cup champions.
In June, he became the first men's player to make 200 international appearances when he featured for Portugal against Iceland, and he is also the top international goal scorer with 128 goals.
