Despite being hit with a venomous Ronaldo strike, the cameraman stayed as professional as he could by holding onto the camera whilst trying to stay on his feet.
As a result of their win against Al Raed, Al Nassr moved up to sixth place in the Saudi Professional League table.
Al Nassr have so far collected 12 points from their first six league matches.
This week, it has been reported that Ronaldo is set to sue his former side, Juventus over unpaid wages.
According to Italian news outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is looking for
the €19.9 million that he was promised by the Serie A giants when he agreed to defer his salary due to the COVID pandemic.
It is believed that Ronaldo has decided to begin legal action against Juventus after asking for the relevant documents from the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office.
Aside from Ronaldo, another former Juventus player is also set to be about to sue the club.
Defender Leonard Bonucci is set to begin legal action against the club over training conditions.
It is claimed that his lawyers will proceed with the legal action, consisting of a ‘request for compensation for damages due to the alleged lack of adequate training and preparation conditions available to Bonucci’.
