According to the outlet Haza, the Al Nassr player, along with other stars of the team, had to undergo a surprise doping test hours before the match against Al Hilal.

Saudi Arabia is on alert due to a visit by several members of the Anti-Doping Committee to the Al Nassr headquarters to conduct a surprise check on some footballers, including Cristiano Ronaldo, just hours before their match against Al Hilal, which will pit the two top teams of the championship against each other this Friday, with Al Hilal already having secured the title.

According to the outlet Haza, doctors arrived at Al Nassr’s sports city on Tuesday afternoon and summoned the Portuguese player for testing.

The same sources consulted by the newspaper also report that a sample was taken from his compatriot and teammate, Otávio. AS has learned that other members of the squad were also required to undergo testing.

Al Nassr fans reacted angrily to the incident, demanding that stars from Al Hilal also undergo urgent testing. In recent years, the Anti-Doping Committee has caught several players using steroids, the most notable being Saudi star Fahd Al-Mawlid, currently a player for Al-Shabab and former player of the Jeddah Football Club, who was sanctioned.

Cristiano has scored 31 goals this season with Al Nassr, although his outstanding performance has not been enough for his team to win the title.

Al Hilal, led by Jorge Jesus, has secured the championship and will play against the second-place team on Friday in a classic match with nothing at stake.
