Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Europe – Al-Nassr coach. Cristiano Ronaldo won’t finish his career in Saudi Arabia, according to Al-Nassr manager Rudi Garcia, and will play again in Europe.
Ronaldo quit playing in Europe at the end of the previous season after Manchester United cancelled his contract due to a contentious television appearance in which he insulted the Red Devils and their head coach, Erik ten Hag.
The international player from Portugal also had a poor performance at the 2022 World Cup, which was held in Qatar in November and December.
In his first game, Ronaldo helped Al-Nassr overcome Ettifaq 1-0.

According to the French manager of his team, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner who signed a two-year deal with Al-Nassr may go back to Europe.
Before hanging up his boots, the 37-year-old, according to Garcia, still has the energy to put on a good show in Europe.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a useful acquisition because he spreads out defenders, according to Garcia. Garcia proclaimed, “He is one of the top players in the world.”
He will go back to Europe rather than end his career at Al-Nassr.
In a 1-0 victory over Al-Ettifaq, Ronaldo made his competitive Al-Nassr debut following a friendly encounter against Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain.
His second participation had little impact because Al-Ittihad defeated his team in the Saudi Super Cup on Thursday.
Ronaldo received criticism after the game for missing a golden opportunity just before Al-Ittihad scored a second goal.
Cristiano’s squandered opportunity in the first half was one among the factors that altered the outcome of the game, according to Garcia.
