Ronaldo’s assertion “Saudi League? Become ‘4th or 5th in the world’ in 5-7 years”

“It’s not the Premier League…”

Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to the Middle East and was selected for the Portuguese national team, once again defended his choice. It meant that the Saudi Arabia league could grow into a big league in the future.

Ronaldo was included in the Portuguese national football team’s list for the 2024 German European Football Championship (Euro 2024) qualifying match against Luxembourg and Liechtenstein and headed to Portugal. Spanish coach Robert Martinez, who has newly taken over the leadership of Portugal, has dismissed several veteran players such as Sergio Ramos, but has shown his confidence in him by calling in 38-year-old Ronaldo.

Of the players aged 35 and over, the only ones Martinez has brought in are Ronaldo and 40-year-old defender Pepe.

In fact, there were doubts about whether Ronaldo would be selected for the new Portugal national team. This is because he left the world’s most competitive Premier League and moved to Saudi Arabia Al Nas. Since he earned an annual salary of 200 million euros (approximately 280 billion won), he faced tremendous criticism, saying, “Isn’t it because of money that he went to a low-level league?”

Ronaldo has scored 9 goals in 10 matches, including 4 goals against Al Weda on the 10th of last month and a hat-trick in the 2nd match on the 26th of the same month. He was even selected as the Saudi League’s Player of the Month in February. As soon as they go there, they are dominating the Saudi league.

However, in an interview with the Portuguese national team, Ronaldo insisted that it could become a big league by emphasizing the competitiveness of the Saudi Arabia league.

“Saudi Arabia is a very competitive league,메이저사이트” Ronaldo said in an interview. “I don’t want to lie, it’s not really the (English) Premier League, but it remains a league that has given me positive surprises.”

He emphasized, “If the Saudi plan is implemented well, it will become the 4th or 5th league in the world within 5-7 years.”
