Cristiano Ronaldo boldly told that he is “not a unique player.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has heard that he is “not a unique player” despite all that he has accomplished in the game.
Ronaldo said in his opening press conference after inking a staggering £175 million-per-year contract with Al Nassr. “This contract is unique because I am a unique player.”
However, Karren Brady, vice-chairwoman of West Ham United, has debunked the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s assertions. It smells “conceited,” he said.
She claims Ronaldo is fixated on longtime rival Lionel Messi and does nothing that others can’t do.
“Maybe there’s a lot to like about Ronaldo,” she wrote in her Sun column.
“He scores goals with an unstoppable ability and is athletic. But this most recent remark is oozing with arrogance: “I’m happy, proud to join Al Nassr. Because I am a special player, this contract is also special. I’m used to it.”
“To begin with, he isn’t a particularly special player. He performs most tasks competently and some brilliantly, but nothing that others can’t or haven’t. Messi and Pele would never use language like this.
And nagging at Ronaldo constantly is his obsession with Messi, whose career at Barcelona was at least on par with his at Real Madrid.”
In his first game in the kingdom against Messi and Paris Saint-Germain in a lucrative friendly, he scored twice.
However, he hasn’t scored in either of his first two matches for Al Nassr, and his most recent outing resulted in a 3-1 Saudi Super Cup loss to Al Ittihad.
With a saved header, Ronaldo had a great opportunity to tie the score. The game’s turning point, according to manager Rudi Garcia, was that, though.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s missed opportunity in the first half, according to the former Roma and Lyon manager, “was one of the things that changed the course of the game.”
Ronaldo was subjected to chants about Lionel Messi by the opposing team’s fans, which made matters worse.
In the Saudi Pro League on Friday, February 3, he will be attempting to make his debut against Al Fateh.
