Cristiano Ronaldo eyes to gain another trophy after breaking records and making new history at Saudi Pro League.

Al Nassr player sends a clear message to the referee prior to the King Cup of Champions final. He urges for a "fair" game in opposition to the rivals Al Hilal, according to Clutch Points.

Scoring twice in a 4-2 victory over Al-Ittihad, Ronaldo has had an impressive season. Breaking the earlier league record of 34 goals set by Moroccan player Abderrazak Hamdallah in the 2018-2019 season, his goals in that match brought his total to 35 in 31 games.

The 39-year-old Ronaldo said while reflecting on his achievement: "I'm very happy. Firstly, for the team's victory and for finishing the championship well. And then, breaking a league goals record. I'll confess that I'm very happy. I wasn't expecting it and it's important for me. The most important thing is always the team. We are in good shape… We are doing well, we are improving."

Al Nassr's forward added: "We finished the league well, and now it's time to win the King's Cup. What I can hope is that the team can play well, that it can be a final well played, and that it is fair. That's what I ask the most."
