Thibaut Courtois, the goalkeeper for Real Madrid, is one of the main reasons Cristiano Ronaldo relocated to Saudi Arabia to continue his football career. According to him, the Portuguese superstar relocated to Saudi Arabia to help the country’s football.
Second, the former Chelsea goalie stated that Al Nassr wishes to win the Saudi League.
Ronaldo has signed a one-year contract with Al-Nassr for a rumored sum of €200 million.
The 37-year-old Portugal international’s contract at Old Trafford was terminated when he gave an inflammatory interview to Piers Morgan on TalkTV just before the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
With his Al Nassr contract, he is currently the highest-paid athlete in the world and will make his debut soon.
Speaking about the arrival of someone like Ronaldo in Saudi Arabia, Courtois told reporters on Tuesday, “Cristiano Ronaldo? Saudi Arabia want to improve in sport, we’ve seen how they won vs Argentina at the World Cup.
“I think Al Nassr got Cristiano Ronaldo to win the league,” he continued.
