‘I am happy here’: Cristiano Ronaldo confirms he will stay at Al Nassr
Cristiano Ronaldo has made the decision to stay at Al Nassr despite having failed to lead the team to the Saudi Pro League title. The Portugal star was said to be pushing for a move, which was fuelled by interest from some European clubs.
He signed a 2-1/2 year contract with Al Nassr that has been estimated to be worth more than 200 million Euros. After a controversial interview with journalist Piers Morgan in which he slammed the club’s management and manager Erik ten Hag, his contract with Manchester United was terminated.
In a recent interaction with the Saudi Pro League’s official social media account, Ronaldo stated that although he believes the league to be quite good there are still plenty of opportunities for us to grow. According to him, he thinks the league is good, it’s competitive. “We have very good teams, we have very good Arab players. The infrastructure I think they need to improve a little bit more. The referees and the VAR system. I think they should be a little bit more quicker. I think other small things they need to improve. but I am happy here, I want to continue here, I will continue here.”
He also added that in his perspective if they continue to perform the work that they want to do, the Saudi League can be the 5th (best league) in the world in the next five years.
