Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the circulating video and found the claim to be misleading.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed directly to the tunnel after his team’s loss to Morocco, and it was the bodyguard who pushed the fan against Ronaldo while trying to capture him.

The Scene Was Captured from a Different Angle

Misbar found a published video showing Cristiano Ronaldo heading down the players' tunnel following the match.

In the video, Ronaldo can be seen heading down the tunnel while being followed by a fan.

The bodyguard hit the fan as he attempted to prevent him from reaching for Ronaldo.

Additionally, another video taken from the spectators' view was shared on social media.

The security guard can be seen pushing the fan in the video as he tries to prevent him from getting too close to Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo Shows His Fans His Support

Contrary to claims, Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his respect and support for his fans.

Ronaldo makes a supportive gesture to Portuguese fans after the team's 6-1 victory over Switzerland.

In the video, he was seen asking his teammates to applaud for the fans, and he led that encouraging gesture.

In addition, during the World Cup match against Uruguay, Ronaldo was seen taking a picture with two disabled children.

Portugal’s Quarter-Final Match Loss to Morocco

On December 10, Morocco made history by becoming the first African country to reach the World Cup’s semifinals after they eliminated Portugal from the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Following a 1-0 loss to Morocco in the quarterfinals, Portugal was knocked out of the tournament.

Cristiano Ronaldo didn't start the match, but he came on as a substitute in the 51st minute.
