Cristiano Ronaldo made his Saudi Arabia League debut on the 23rd (hereinafter Korean time). After moving to Al Nasr at the end of last year, he played a friendly match against PSG (Paris Saint-Germain), but it was his first league match.
He had no attack points. He fired free kicks and bicycle kicks from inside the penalty box, but they failed.
There was an expectation that “Ronaldo will play the king on the Asian stage”, but it was missed. Even in Saudi Arabia, Ronaldo’s attacking power was not sharp.
Al Nasr beat Al Itifak 1-0. Ronaldo played full-time as a starting striker.
British media ‘The Sun’ criticized Ronaldo. “There was no special presence. No one would have expected to see Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian league. Al Nasr won, but it was a frustrating moment for Ronaldo,” he said. It’s more contrasting. Ronaldo has now become a fallen icon.”
Manchester United terminated the contract with Ronaldo in November and rode the upward trend. Before losing to Arsenal on the 23rd, they were running 9 wins and 1 draw in 10 matches.
If this is the case with the 4th place in the Premier League, Ronaldo can go to the UEFA Champions League next season, which Ronaldo wanted so much. With Ronaldo gone, a new star named Marcus Rashford emerged and the organization became stronger.
On the other hand, Ronaldo did not have a team that called out to Man United. Saudi Arabia seduced Ronaldo with huge oil money. 메이저놀이터
In his two-year contract, the annual salary reached a whopping 200 million euros (268 billion won). Ronaldo said several teams were interested in him, but in reality there was only one option.
However, even in Saudi Arabia, which is called the periphery of world football, his toes were blunt. The career gap with Lionel Messi, who once divided the world soccer world, is widening.
