ESPN reported on Wednesday that “Ronaldo has officially confirmed that he will stay with Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr for next season. But he believes the league has a lot of work to do to become one of the best in the world,” ESPN reported.
Ronaldo, who was released by Manchester United during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, made headlines when he joined the Saudi league for an annual salary of 270 billion won. Ronaldo scored 14 goals in 16 games in the Saudi League, but he didn’t quite live up to expectations. His team, Al Nassar, finished second, losing the title to Al Ittihad.
Ronaldo was expected to make a return to Europe after the season, but he ended up staying in the Saudi league. Realistically, no European club would be willing to pay his exorbitant price tag.
Ronaldo told the SPL: “The Saudi league is very good. Arab players are very good and competitive. But the league needs to improve 메이저사이트 structurally. In particular, the refereeing and VAR systems need to be more sophisticated and faster.”
In fact, Ronaldo has had his fair share of altercations with referees in the Saudi league, including throwing his captain’s armband to the ground when he was challenged for an autograph by an opponent. “I’m happy to play in Saudi Arabia,” Ronaldo said. If it develops in the next five years, it will be one of the best leagues in the world,” he said.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has also been inundated with offers to play in Saudi Arabia. Saudi professional teams such as Al-Hilal have offered Messi an astronomical €500 million ($701.2 million) for two years. If Messi accepts the offer, it could be the start of the “Messi Wars” in Saudi Arabia.
