Cristiano Ronaldo’s first full season with Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia is moving towards an end after delivering many celebrity appearances and gaining millions of pounds.

However, the Al Nassr player did not win any league title. On the back of a fiery interview with Piers Morgan, where he spoke against his former employers at Manchester United, the Portuguese player became part of Al Nassr in 2022, according to Daily Mail.

Fans expected more trophies from Cristiano Ronaldo when he set to play for Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia. 

Ronaldo and his team Al Nassr are on 79 points from 33 games, as they went into the final game of the season on Monday. Interestingly, a staggering 14 behind champions Al Hilal, though remain 17 ahead of Al Ahli in third.

Cristiano Ronaldo still remains one of the best players in the world for his fans even though he is 39 now. He is looking to prove more at Euro 2024 this summer with Portugal.

Ronaldo’s real reason behind joining Al Nassr has been speculated to only be money. He was known as the first giant name to join Saudi Arabian Al Nassr. Following him, players like Karim Benzema and Neymar also came to Saudi Arabia.

Moreover, last summer, Ronaldo also disclosed that he was struggling to adapt to the heat of the country.
