Going into the halftime break, Al-Nassr were already 5-0 up, leading many to troll the former Al Ahly boss on social media.

Ronaldo was the chief destroyer of Abha Club, scoring a first-half hat-trick and grabbing an assist, talkSPORT reported.

Two of his games through free kicks, highlighting his quality even at 39.

Senegal’s Sadio Mane also got onto the scoresheet, as the Al-Nassr ran riot. CR7 was taken off at the halftime break, but things didn’t get any easier for Mosimane’s side.

They conceded a further three goals in the second half and lost the game 8-0.

Social media had a field day during and after the game, with some suggesting that Jingles would get sacked after that performance.

Here is how social media reacted:


“Game over. Abha 0-8 Al Nassr. Dr Pitso Mosimane is going to get sacked. 😭”


“Pitso Mosimane caught some serious hands 😂😂😂😂😂😂 8!!!”


“Pitso Mosimane's Abha getting pummelled 8 : 0 and Cristiano and Mane only played 45 mins.”


“Pitso Mosimane's club being whooped 6 - 0, Pirates and its fans finally getting they're revenge. 😭”


“Pitso Mosimane is getting proper cooking. 😭😭😭”

Mosimane's biggest defeats

Following the heavy defeat to Al-Nassr, Sports Brief looked at the biggest defeats Mosimane has suffered in his career.

The South African coach is not used to losing badly, but Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr side gave him a taste of bitter defeat.

His previous worst loss as a manager was in 2015, when he suffered a 5-0 loss while in charge of Mamelodi Sundowns.
