Sadio Mane wasn’t having it one bit

Cristiano Ronaldo clashed with Al Hilal’s Ali Al-Bulayhi in the aftermath of their 3-0 win against Al Nassr.

Ronaldo wasn’t impressed with what he thought was Al-Bulayhi playacting and pretended that he couldn’t hear as his opponent raged at him.

Sadio Mane, a teammate of Ronaldo, was seen sarcastically clapping Al-Bulayhi, who was sent off after receiving two yellow cards.

Despite the confrontation it was Al-Bulayhi who would’ve been the happier of the two come full time as Al Hilal recorded a stunning 3-0 victory.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic had put Al-Hilal in the lead, with former Newcastle and Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic then proceeding to score a brace.

Al Hilal are now seven points clear at the top of the Saudi Pro League.

At half time Ronaldo sarcastically blew kisses at the Al Hilal fans after they were heard chanting Lionel Messi’s name.

So far this season Ronaldo has scored 18 goals in 20 games for Al-Nassr across all competitions, also providing nine assists in that time.
