According to Saudi media, Cristiano Ronaldo left Saudi Arabia on May 30 to rest before joining the Portuguese team.
On June 1, Al Nassr will play the last match in the Saudi Pro League (SPL) against Al Fateh. However, this is just a procedural game because the home club Mrsool Park has no chance to win the championship because it is 4 points behind Al Ittihad.
Previously, Ronaldo had suffered a minor injury in the match against Al Ettifaq. According to reports from Al Nassr’s medical team, Ronaldo did not have a muscle tear. However, he still actively asked coach Dinko Jelicic to take a break before leaving Saudi Arabia by private plane. CR7 does not want to take risks before the recruitment date.
Ronaldo has just had a second consecutive season without a title. However, the Portuguese superstar still left his mark with 14 goals after 16 appearances in the SPL.
Good performance helped the former Man United striker to be called up to the national team to prepare for a series of qualifying matches in EURO 2024. At the age of 38, Ronaldo is still guaranteed a future by coach Martinez in the national team. Former captain Wigan wants to take advantage of the experience and leadership ability of the student born in 1985.
On June 18 and 21, “Seleccao” will have two matches, against Bosnia and Iceland respectively. Ronaldo and his teammates are leading Group J with 6 points after two matches. In the qualifying round, the top two teams in each group will have tickets to the EURO 2024 finals.
