CR7 introduces himself: “Many clubs looked for me, I gave the floor to Al-Nassr
“Many clubs looked for me, I chose Saudi Arabia.” Cristiano Ronaldo explains the life choice that led him to sign a 500 million contract with Al-Nassr until 2025. “When I made my decision, my family immediately supported me, especially my children. Here they received a wonderful welcome and I’m really happy to be here with all my family. Being in Saudi Arabia for me is a great opportunity not only for football but also to change the mentality of the new generations”, said CR7 during the press conference presentation.
“I had many opportunities in Europe, many clubs looked for me, such as in Brazil, Australia, the United States, Portugal, but I had already given my word to Al-Nassr: this is a new challenge, I know what I want and what I don’t want. There is a possibility of change, of helping others. There are many people who don’t know this football and I want it to change, for the perspective to be different.”
“In 10-15 years all the teams have the opportunity to change and this is demonstrated by the World Cup where Arabian and African teams have done so well. There is still a lot of room for improvement for this movement and this championship is very competitive. I know what I want and I can’t wait to start playing,” he adds.
