Al-Nassr reportedly fired head coach Rudi Gracia Garcia owing to a string of poor results and a strained relationship with the players.
Al-Nassr failed to build on a 5-0 win last week, instead settling for a 0-0 draw with Al Feia on Sunday, which put things in motion.
Cristiano Ronaldo stormed off the field as a result of the loss, and tempers reportedly boiled in the locker room.
Garcia made his displeasure known to the players at full-time, according to Spanish publication Marca, and things got heated.
Garcia said at full-time “I dont feel satisfied with their performance’
“I asked them to play at the same level as the last game , but this didn’t happen.”
The report also suggests that the Portugal captain, Ronaldo is unhappy with Garcia and his tactics as he believes the coach could be getting much more from Al-Nassr players.
Additionally, a report from AS has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo and the club’s hierarchy held a meeting where the 38-year-old expressed his deep dissatisfaction with Garcia’s tactics.
Al-Nassr are in second place, three points off table toppers Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League.
Cristiano Ronaldo joined the Saudi Arabian outfit in December and has gone on to score 11 goals in his first 12 appearances for the club.
