While in France Lionel Messi with a goal in the 1-1 draw against Strasbourg gives PSG 11 titles, Cristiano Ronaldo ends his season in Saudi Arabia with zero titles. In fact, the championship was won by Al Ittihad led by Nuno Espirito Santo, who conquered it with a match to spare with a 3-0 victory over Al-Feiha. But to win the Saudi championship arithmetically, at least half a misstep by Al Nassr was also needed. And so it went: Cristiano Ronaldo's team drew 1-1. And here is yet another seasonal disappointment for the Portuguese champion, capable of winning five Champions Leagues in his career (one with Manchester United and four with Real Madrid), but nothing (for now) in Saudi Arabia.
so theAl Ittihad, who has an old acquaintance of Italian football in the team, Coronado (ex of Palermo and Trapani), celebrated the title and certified a rather negative year for Cristiano Ronaldo. First eliminated in the King Cup, then lost the Super Cup final and finished second in the league. Certainly not a congenial epilogue to the first vintage for CR7, one used to winning. And if it doesn't happen, like this time, he's also famous for his tantrums and whining on the pitch. The 14 goals in the Saudi league signed by the Lusitanian playmaker remain, even if he did not win the top scorer. But at least here he has an extenuating circumstance: he has only played 15 games.
CR7 signed for theAl Nassr, initially led by former Roma coach Rudi Garcia, at the end of December 2022. The agreement guarantees the Portuguese 200 million euros in salary a year for the next two and a half years (until June 2025 when he would stop playing football) for a total of approximately 500 million euros. According to rumors, CR7 could be given another 500 million euros from June 2025 until 2030 for his role as ambassador of the Kingdom if in 2024 Saudi Arabia manages to get the 2030 World Cup together with Egypt and Greece. For a total of one billion euros until 2030. In short, crazy numbers for zero securities. Perhaps it will be for next year.
