'The door is finally closed': Ronaldo makes a resounding career statement
Legendary Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo has ruled out his return to European soccer. The Saudi Arabian Al-Nasr player noted that only the English Premier League corresponds to the top level, while the other championships are very much inferior to it.
At the same time, Cristiano immodestly noted that his transfers instantly raise interest in the championship where he performs. He also called 100% correct his move to Saudi Arabia. Insider Fabrizio Romano quotes the words of the Portuguese star on his page in the social network Twitter.
"I'm not going back to European soccer. The door is definitively closed. I'm 38, and European soccer has become of lesser quality. Only the English Premier League is up to par. It is a head above the other championships. When I moved to Juventus, Serie A was dead, and then it revived. Wherever Cristiano is, he is causing an increase in interest. I was criticized for moving to Saudi Arabia. And what is happening now? I opened the road and now players are coming here. My decision was absolutely the right one. The local league is stronger than MLS in the US and will soon overtake Turkey and the Netherlands," Ronaldo said.
Recall, Cristiano Ronaldo played for Portuguese Sporting, English Manchester United, Spanish Real Madrid, Italian Juventus. In December 2022, he signed a contract with Al Nasr with an annual salary of 90 million euros. In addition, 100 million is due to him under commercial agreements.
