Including many fans believe that even though Ronaldo is 37 years old, he still maintains a good competitiveness and should choose a higher level of European leagues and teams instead of coming to the relatively low level of the Saudi League.
Ronaldo does not agree with this. Ronaldo affirmed Saudi football in the interview. In the opening game of the World Cup, Saudi Arabia defeated eventual champions Argentina. Ronaldo said: “If you think Saudi football is bad, it only means that you don’t know the football here at all, and you have never seen the game here. Winning the game is never accidental.”

With a series of commercial terms, Ronaldo can earn nearly 200 million euros a year after joining Riyadh Victory. . This also makes Ronaldo the highest paid player in the world today, higher than Neymar, Messi and Mbappe combined.
During his time at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo once angrily smashed a fan’s mobile phone, which led to his suspension. The suspension of the Portuguese superstar has also been extended to the Saudi League. It is expected that Ronaldo’s Riyadh victory debut will be postponed until January 20.
