Cristiano Ronaldo will not end his football career at Al-Nassr, according to manager Rudi Garcia, and he will play again in Europe.
After completing a spectacular move to the Saudi club earlier this month, things haven’t quite gone to plan for the Portuguese superstar. Near rivals Al-Ittihad knocked league leaders Garcia out of the Arabian Super Cup on Thursday, with skipper Ronaldo once again cleared after leaving without a goal last Sunday…
The team manager was candid about what he saw as a problem with the absorption of the Portuguese superstar into the squad. As well as saying that Ronaldo’s posture was too similar to his teammate Anderson Talisca, Garcia blamed his colleagues for passing him too often.
Ronaldo decided to join the Saudi club after discovering that no European team was willing to extend a contract for him in the summer of 2016. The player’s alternatives were limited due to his high salary expectations, his performance on the declining terrain and its growing age.
In his shocking interview with Piers Morgan, he revealed he parted ways with Manchester United amicably in November.
