Cristiano Ronaldo has predicted that the Saudi Arabian Professional League, where he plays, will become one of the top five leagues in the world in the future.
According to Spanish publication El Mundo Deportivo, Ronaldo is very happy with the level of the Saudi league and believes it has the potential to grow into something bigger. “The league is improving, and next year it will be even better,” Ronaldo said. It’s going to take some steps, but I think it’s going to be one of the top five leagues in the world in the future.”스포츠토토
For starters, the recruitment “chatter” coming out of Saudi Arabia is definitely not big league. Following Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabia, veteran superstars of an era such as Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Lionel Messi have been linked to the country. High-profile coaches such as former Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and former Brazil national soccer team coach Tite are also attracting interest from Saudi clubs. While many of these players are past their prime, no other league on the fringes has gotten as much attention as Saudi Arabia in recent years.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, has taken his game to the next level since joining Al Nasr, scoring 14 goals and providing two assists in 15 appearances.
