Cristiano Ronaldo: I'm staying in Saudi Arabia

Cristiano Ronaldo and his future are a topic from year to year. Although many believed that the Portuguese would leave Saudi Arabia this summer and return to Europe, it seems that his plan is to stay and help Al Nassr achieve their goals.

Ronaldo expects Saudi Arabia to be in the top 5 leagues in the next few years. “I am happy here, I want to continue here, I will continue here,” -he said, as quoted by eurosport.com “And in my opinion if they continue to do the work that they want to do here, for the next five years, I think the Saudi league can be a top five league in the world.
I will be part of your world, your culture, I will be here, I hope I make the people enjoy through my games, my performance, and to win things, but again, thank you for welcoming me, and I will try to give my best during the time that I will be here”.

Cristiano Ronaldo talks about the differences between Europe and Saudi Arabia

Ronaldo broke many records in Europe and together with Leo Messi is considered the greatest ever. The Portuguese spoke about the differences between Europe and Saudi Arabia regarding football.

Namely, the biggest difference is in the training and their intensity. It was difficult for Ronaldo to get used to night training during Ramadan. Nevertheless, he looks forward to every new experience that helps him become the best version of himself.

“One example is in Europe we train more in the morning, but here we train in the afternoon, or evening and in Ramadan we train at 10 at night - so this is so strange, but as I tell you these situations are part of an experience, memories,” -he said.
“I like to live these moments because you learn with these things.

It is difficult, but it is nothing I have not seen before. My experience so far is that Saudi fans they really love football and like to live the life and it is good and I am so happy until now.’
Well, my expectation was a little bit different, to be honest I expected to win something this year, but it is not always the way we think or the way we want, sometimes we need passion, consistency, and persistence to achieve the best things
.

Ronaldo is a player who is always hungry for trophies. Arriving in Saudi Arabia, his goal was to win as many trophies as possible. He did not succeed in his intention, but he does not plan to give up and hopes that he will really win the trophy.

“So, I still believe that next year we will improve a lot, let us say in the last five or six months, the team has improved a lot, even the league, all the teams improved.
It takes time sometimes, but if you believe and you think it is your goal, I think everything is possible.

I expected to win something this year, but we didn’t, but next year I am really positive and confident that things will change, and we go in a better way. So, let us believe that and work on that”.
