“Before Ronaldo’s debut? All-Star Game” Coach Al-Nasr, PSG friendly match ‘dissatisfaction’
Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to make his Saudi Arabian debut against Lionel Messi.
On the 4th (Korean time), Ronaldo announced his arrival in the Saudi Arabia league through the Al-Nasr joining ceremony.
“I have achieved everything in Europe,” Ronaldo said at his inauguration ceremony. Now is the time to take on a new challenge in Asia.”
Although the initiation ceremony was held and the uniform was worn, Ronaldo’s debut is yet to come. This is because he was suspended from playing for Manchester United by the English Football Association (FA).
Ronaldo hit a boy fan hard on the back of his hand in a match against Everton in April last year, and was suspended for two games.
In the midst of this, an interview with manager Al Nasr was reported that Ronaldo’s debut match would be a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain.
Al-Nassr coach Rudi García said in an interview with French media L’Equipe, “Ronaldo will not wear the Al-Nassr uniform in his debut match. He will play in the All-Star game, which consists of Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal.”
The All-Star Game is a friendly match in which the combined teams of Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal face off against PSG at the King Fahd Stadium in Riyadh on the 19th.
After moving to the Middle East, Ronaldo got a chance to play the last ‘Meho War’ with Messi, who seemed unlikely to face him again. 메이저사이트
However, coach Garcia expressed dissatisfaction with the friendly against PSG itself.
“As a manager, I am not satisfied with playing a friendly against PSG. We have a league match in three days. It may not be a big deal, but we should have considered the league schedule more.”
“But it will be a positive match for the development of Saudi Arabian football,” he acknowledged the purpose of the match.
Garcia emphasized the greatness of Ronaldo’s decision to move to the Middle East team.
He said: “Ronaldo is great. He is Al Nasr’s best player. The development of football in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East is important. This is something that has a similar impact to Pele’s joining the New York Cosmos,” he said, admiring that he “announced the existence of Al-Nasr to the world.”
Regarding Ronaldo’s adaptation, Garcia said, “Ronaldo’s condition is very good. “If Ronaldo finds the joy of playing again, he will help him achieve another goal,” he said.
