He also added, “The most important thing is the present, enjoying and winning for the club,” considering that the Saudi League has very great potential and world-class players. He’s very strong and very competitive, and that’s why I’m here today.”
In addition, the management of the Saudi Al-Nasr Club received the international card for its Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo, accompanied by the suspension penalty imposed on him by the English Football Association.
Al-Nasr presented its Portuguese player on Tuesday at his Marsoul Park stadium in Riyadh, after he signed him on Saturday in a free transfer deal, following the termination of his contract with Manchester United last month.
According to Al-Arabiya’s sources, the management of the Al-Assi club received the international card for the Portuguese star, accompanied by a suspension of the penalty for two matches from the date of his registration in the club’s lists.
The English Football Association imposed a two-match ban in November on the club after he threw a mobile phone to a fan in the Everton match last season, and by attaching the penalty to his international card, Ronaldo will not participate in the next two Al-Nasr matches from the date of his registration in the Al-Nasr club lists.
