A teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr has revealed why the star gets angry in training…
A teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo has lifted the lid on what the forward is like in training, describing how he gets “angry.”
It is hardly a surprise, given the Portuguese star’s competitive nature.
Ronaldo has let his frustration boil over in matches, with him desperate to win at all times.
In April, the 38-year-old was recorded ranting at Al-Feiha players, telling them, “you don’t want to play” as they wasted time in a 0-0 draw, ensuring Al-Nassr lost ground in the title race.
Later that same month, he showed his disappointment after a 1-0 loss to Al-Wehda in the semi-finals of the King Cup.
He collapsed to his knees after the defeat, having also argued with his coaches at half-time.
And recently, footage went viral of Ronaldo acting as both a player and a manager during Al-Nassr’s match against Ettifaq.
He directed players where to pass the ball and where to go, desperate to get his side three points as they pursued the league title.

That desire to win also spills over into his training behind the scenes.
Ronaldo has been praised for being a model professional by teammates in the past, with reports revealing that while at Juventus, he would turn up four hours early to prepare for football’s return from lockdown.
