Al-Nassr Boss Reveals Cristiano Ronaldo Has Quickly Adapted To Al-Nassr’s Style After Four-goal Haul


    Al-Nassr boss Rudi Garcia has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo has quickly adapted to Al-Nassr’s style of play after his four-goal haul against Al-Wehda in the Saudi Pro league.

    Cristiano bagged a four-goal haul to help his new club see off Saudi professional League side Al-Wehda 0-4 in his fourth match for the club.

    The former Manchester United forward made a huge statement with a sparkling display for his new club after what appeared to be an underwhelming start to his spell in Saudi Arabian football.

    Before the game against Al-Wehda, Cristiano Ronaldo was a subject of most pundits who teared into the 38-year-old for an abysmal performance in his new club after signing a mega deal that made him the highest-paid football athlete in history.

    In his Al-Nassr debut, the Portuguese star failed to record a single shot on target. He also failed to live up to the bidding in the second game against Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Super Cup semi-final.

    The five-times Ballon d’Or winner missed a chance that would have changed the direction of the game and earned the fury of Al-Nassr boss Rudi Garcia, who blamed him for the defeat.

    Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal for Al-Nassr by converting a late spot kick to salvage a point for the club days after.

    However, he still came under the tirades of pundits who believed it is high time he called time on his football career after continuing with his poor form from Manchester United and the 2022 World Cup.

    Now, it appears the Portuguese all-time highest goal-scorer has proven his critics wrong, netting a four-goal haul for Al-Nassr in their last League game against Al-Wehda.

    Rudi Garcia has now been forced to backtrack on his comment on Ronaldo after he scored all the four goals in the win against Al-Wehda.

    A furious Garcia had asked Al-Nassr players not to always try to pass the ball to Cristiano Ronaldo, blaming the player for Al-Nassr’s Super Cup semifinal loss to Al-Ittihad.

    Garcia told the team to approach every game normally without depending on the club’s big arrival.

    “It is very important that the players play normally and don’t always try to give Cristiano the ball. I told them they had to make the right decisions on the pitch.” he said.

    Now Cristiano Ronaldo has rolled back the periods of his underwhelming start in the Middle East and fired four pass Al-Wehda.

    Speaking after Ronaldo’s fire display against Al-Wehda, Rudi Garcia said Cristiano Ronaldo is beginning to adapt to the team and his teammates are beginning to figure out how to get the best out of him.

    “Obviously, Cristiano Ronaldo is gradually adapting to the team and his teammates are starting to read and understand what he wants. He is a complete striker and will grow with the club with time.”

    The win against Al-Wehda means Al-Nassr are potently in the race to win their first Saudi Arabia League title since 2019. They are top of the table and are stuck on same points with Al-Ittihad, but are separated on goal difference.

    Al-Nassr will take on Al-Taawoun in their next game, with Cristiano Ronaldo expected to continue banging the goals for the Saudi club.

    After his controversial move to Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo has now reached a milestone in his football career, netting a record 503 league goals.
