Spanish media ‘Marca’ reported on the 2nd (Korean time), “Ronaldo thinks the Saudi league can become one of the top 5 leagues in the world.”
Ronaldo, who started the season with Manchester United last summer, was soon in the position. He came into conflict with new head coach Eric ten Haag. He broke up at the end of the year after setting the edge, such as refusing to order a replacement.
Afterwards, Ronaldo, unable to find a destination in Europe, turned to Asia. In January of this year, he joined Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr and took on a new challenge half of his will. After joining mid-season, Ronaldo finished his first season with 14 goals in 16 league appearances. Although the number of individual goals was respected, the team that ran first in the league ended the season empty-handed.
Ronaldo looked back on the season through the league media channel, saying, “It was slightly different from my expectations,” and “Honestly, I hoped to win this year.” “It doesn’t always work out the way we think or want it to,” he added. “Sometimes it takes a little passion, consistency, persistence and determination to get to the top.”
He said, “I still believe that our team will improve a lot next season.”
Ronaldo said, “I hoped to win this season, but I couldn’t,” and “I feel positive and confident that I will go in a better direction next season.” He added, “Sometimes it takes time, but I think anything is possible if you believe in your goal.”
He also predicted that if a little environmental improvement and development are made, it will rise to the ranks of the world’s top 5 leagues. He said of the Saudi league, “It is competitive and there are good players,” but “the environment needs to be improved a bit, such as referees and video review (VAR).”
“I think if we develop over the next five years, we can become one of the top five leagues in the world,” said Ronaldo. “I am happy in Saudi Arabia,” he said. “I want to stay here longer and will stay.”
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, with its vast capital, has connections with world-class players. Recently, rumors about the signing of Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain) and Karim Benzema (36, Real Madrid) are circulating.
Regarding this, Ronaldo said, “If a player with a big name comes, whether it is a young player or a veteran player, we will welcome it. If they come, the league will develop a little more.”
