After Al-Nassr’s latest triumph in the Saudi Pro League on Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo responded to his skeptics.
The football star’s arrival in Saudi Arabia in January 2022 was met with widespread applause. His presence sparked a dramatic change in the sport, with numerous high-profile European players signing with Saudi Pro League clubs.
After moving to Al-Nassr, the striker experienced something of a revival. After arriving in the Middle East, he quickly rose to captaincy and led his team to victory in the Arab Club Champions Cup in the summer.
The now 38-year-old Portugal captain continues to surprise his fans with his remarkable game. With Riyad Mahrez and him at the helm, Al-Nassr defeated Al-Ahli 2-1 in a Saudi Pro League match on Friday.
More Ronaldo goals, more Al Nassr victories
The Riyadh-based team won the game thanks to a brace from Ronaldo and Talisca. Thanks to CR7’s two goals, he has scored a total of nine goals in six league games.
Luis Castro’s players are now back in championship contention and they only have the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star to thank for that. They are currently just three points behind Nuno Espirito Santo’s Al Ittihad side, who are dominating the league.
What did Cristiano Ronaldo say?
Many assume that Ronaldo’s spectacular career is approaching and that his days of regularly scoring goals are limited. After the game, however, the 38-year-old responded to his doubters in an interview with the media and emphasized that his playing days are far from over.
He reportedly told the press about: “They think Ronaldo is finished… but that’s not the case.”
“I won’t stop playing until my legs say, ‘Cristiano, I’m done.'” I still have a lot of that. Goals are still a thrill for me in football. Still, the thrill of victory never gets old for me. The people who say I’m done are still wrong.”
