I just came to Saudi Arabia… Ronaldo having difficulties before debut￼
Cristiano Ronaldo’s (38) Saudi Arabia league debut has been delayed.
Ronaldo hit the hand of a boy fan after a match against Everton in April of last year while playing for Manchester United in the English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) and dropped his mobile phone, resulting in a two-game suspension.
According to the rules of the International Football Federation (FIFA), if you transfer to another league without completing the suspension, the existing suspension will be maintained in the new league. AFP also reported on the 7th that “Ronaldo has to digest the two-game suspension he received in the EPL last year.”
As a result, Ronaldo will not be able to play against Al-Shabab scheduled for the 14th following the match against Altai on the 6th, which he missed.
The media quoted an Al-Nasr official as saying, “According to league regulations that can have up to eight foreign players, Al-Nasr can proceed with Ronaldo’s player registration after adjusting the foreign player quota 토토. The club plans to complete Ronaldo’s player registration on the 6th.”
His debut match is expected around the end of this month. If he has completed player registration before Alta, he can compete before Al-Iti Park on the 21st. However, if the absence from the Altai match does not fall under the two-game ban, it is possible to play from the semi-finals of the Saudi Super Cup with Al Ittihad scheduled on the 25th.
Ronaldo left the European stage at the end of December last year and settled in Al Nasr in the Saudi League. In the meantime, there have been many rumors about going to Saudi Arabia, but this time it came ‘for real’.
Al-Nasr fans greeted Ronaldo fiercely, and Ronaldo said in a press conference after joining, “I want to break the record in Saudi Arabia. I know this league is competitive. I am a unique player who is ready to enjoy,” revealing his confidence without hesitation.
Meanwhile, Al Nasr is in first place in the league with 9 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss.
