Cristiano Ronaldo has apologised after suffering an injury which forced Al-Nassr to postpone their tour of China, which is claimed to have led to angry fans storming inside the club’s hotel to express their disappointment.

The Saudi Pro League side have been training in the city of Shenzhen ahead of their upcoming games with Shanghai Shenua on Wednesday, followed by another friendly with Zhejiang on January 28.

Unsurprisingly, Ronaldo was the star attraction of the tour, with Chinese fans relishing the rare opportunity to see one of the greatest players of all time up close in person.

However, Ronaldo has suffered a muscle injury that has ruled him out of the games, and has led to Al-Nassr postponing the tour.

Video footage on social media though has appeared to show that the news didn’t go down well with Chinese fans hoping to see their hero.

The video shows a number of people storming into a building, which is claimed to be Chinese fans going into Al-Nassr’s hotel to ‘express their disappointment over Ronaldo’s inability to participate in the friendly’.

Another video shows fans outside the hotel chanting Ronaldo’s name repeatedly.

Ronaldo, as per talkSPORT, issued a public apology over his injury leading to the cancellation of the tour.

He said: ‘As you know, in football some things you cannot control. I have played 22 years in football and I am a player that doesn’t have too many injuries.

‘So I’m really sad because Al Nassr and myself have come to China to enjoy the tour. I have been coming to China since 2003/2004, so I feel at home here – my second home.

‘I felt that I am always special here. I feel sad. I know you are sad too, especially the people who love Cristiano, but we have to see this in a good way. We have not cancelled the game, we want to push for the game and be back here. We will be back.

‘Unfortunately, I have some problems, but this is part of football and my life. I’m here, I’m with the fans, I’m with the Chinese people and we are going to continue here. We can see outside the people that are with us.

‘We are sad because we knew this could happen. We will be back to make the Chinese people happy, this is my goal. I want to play for you. Don’t be sad because I am sad and I hope you understand the circumstances of a football player.’

Al-Nassr said the postponed games were ‘beyond their control’ but are willing to complete their training camp in the city of Shenzhen, before returning at a later date to play a match when Ronaldo is back available.
