Al-Nassr Compare Their Instagram Followers To That Of Argentine Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez As They Hailed Ronaldo


Al-Nassr has compared their Instagram followers to that of Emiliano Martinez, as the Saudi Arabian club praised their newly acquired Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Saudi Arabian club’s Instagram followers have increased massively since the acquisition of the ex-Manchester United forward, Ronaldo, which saw them surpass some European elites club, such as Inter Milan, Roma, Napoli, Leicester City, and Ajax.

Emiliano Martinez, a star of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, has been surpassed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club in Saudi Arabia, Al-Nassr, thanks to his contribution of more Instagram followers.

Cristiano Ronaldo has had a significant impact on Al-Nassr despite not even kicking a ball.

Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival, a Saudi Pro League club’s Instagram fan following experienced an abrupt increase.

As of January 10, the club’s Instagram following had grown significantly from 822,000 on December 29 to more than 10.6 million.

Emiliano Martinez, who was crucial to Argentina’s victory at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, has 10.5 million Instagram followers.

At the World Cup final, Emiliano Martinez was the unsung hero of Argentina after saving two penalties and winning the golden glove award.

On December 30, Cristiano Ronaldo was formally introduced as Al Nassr’s new player.

The Middle Eastern club’s Instagram account had about 822,000 followers before Ronaldo’s arrival. This indicates that since Ronaldo joined the team, the club’s fan base has grown by more than 9 million plus people.

Other than the “Big Six” of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham, this is more than any other Premier League team.

With a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Saudi Pro League team, Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo would earn an estimated £175 million a year. The benefits of signing Cristiano Ronaldo are numerous.

Cristiano Ronaldo was the most followed user on Instagram as of January 6, 2023, with 529 million followers. Needless to say, Al-Nassr has piqued the interest of millions of his fans across the globe.

Since announcing Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer, Al-Nassr has gained over 9 million followers, bringing the total to over 10 million plus.

Al-Nassr spectators will have to wait a little longer to see Ronaldo play on the football field. Since Al Nassr exceeded the allotted number of foreign players, Cristiano Ronaldo’s much anticipated debut for his new team has been postponed.

Additionally, Ronaldo is receiving a two-match suspension from the FA for inappropriate and violent behavior.

Against Al Ta’ee, Ronaldo was slated to make his Al Nassr debut. The club, according to an unnamed official, didn’t register the name of the Portuguese captain on time because there was no opening for a foreign player.

The team must register Ronaldo, either through a sale or the mutual termination of the contract of one player, which they have done recently.

On February 3, Cristiano Ronaldo is most likely to make his league debut for Al-Nassr against Al Fateh.

Perhaps by that time, the club’s fan base would have grown by another few million in anticipation of watching one of the greatest football players in history.

Al Nassr is one of the first soccer teams in Saudi Arabia. Rudi Garcia, a former manager of European clubs including Roma, Lille, and Olympique de Marseille, presently oversees the team, which has won nine Saudi Premier League championships.
