Chants for Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo goes ballistic

Cristiano Ronaldo cannot contain his anger over the pro-Messi chants intoned by fans during the King’s Cup match between his Al-Nassr and Al'Al-Ettifaq.

CR7, already unnerved after a squabble with the referee, expressed all his annoyance with the opposing fans, who pelted him with a number of choruses praising his arch-rival with every touch of the ball. Ronaldo made wide gestures of dissent toward the stands, signaling to spectators to be quiet.

Messi on Monday won his eighth career Ballon d'Or, clearly edging out Ronaldo, who stood at five.

Al Nassr then advanced to extra time, thanks to a goal by former Bayern Munich player Mane in 107'
