He hasn’t done enough to justify his huge salary.
Al Nasr were denied the league title after being held to a 1-1 draw by Al Ittifaq in the 29th round of the 2022-2023 Saudi Premier League at Prince Mohammed bin Fahidi Stadium in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, on Monday (28 November).
Al Nasr were denied the league title with one game to spare as leaders Al Ittihad won on the same day.
Al Nasr dominated the game, firing a whopping 30 shots (eight on target), but came up short.
Cristiano Ronaldo also started and formed a two-man frontline with Talisca. However, he was once again unable to find the back of the net and had to watch his team fail to win the title.
Ronaldo was released by Manchester United in November last year after giving an interview in which he openly criticised manager Eric ten Hagh and the club.
He pushed to stay in Europe, but it all fell through and he eventually headed to Saudi Arabia, where he was offered a hefty salary. Al Nasr signed Ronaldo for an astronomical €200m (£293.9m).
However, Ronaldo’s impact has been minimal: He has scored 14 goals and provided two assists in 16 games since his Saudi debut in January. It’s not a bad record, but it seems a bit lacklustre considering his huge salary.메이저놀이터
The non-football noise continued. Ronaldo’s behaviour, such as throwing away his captain’s armband and holding his hands in vital areas, has earned him the hatred of the Saudi media.
In fact, the team’s performance plummeted after Ronaldo’s arrival. First, they lost 0-1 to Mecca in the Saudi Crown quarter-finals, then 1-3 to Jeddah United in the Saudi Super Cup quarter-finals.
Add to that the loss of the league title, and you have a team that hadn’t won all three titles before Ronaldo’s arrival.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo, who has been linked with a return to Europe, has been trying to quell public opinion by performing Islamic rituals in recent days, perhaps conscious of the attention he is receiving from Saudi fans.
