Cristiano Ronaldo reacts as Al-Nassr part ways with Rudi Garcia

Al-Nassr and Rudi Garcia parted ways after a mutual agreement to terminate his contract with the club was reached this week following an unsatisfactory run in the Saudi Pro League.

Rudi Garcia, who is less than a year in his reign at the club, fell out of favor with the club hierachy after it appears Al-Nassr is losing momentum in the Saudi Pro League title race.

Futballnews understands that the former Lyon boss was under pressure after the club’s stalemate draw against Al Feiha which saw them slipped three points down from title contenders and league leaders Al-Ittihad.

With nine games remaining to the end of the season, Rudi Garcia had more than enough games to set the club on the title winning lane but there are reports Cristiano Ronaldo played a big role in his dismissal.

The Manchester United legend who joined the club in a record football deal is said to have charged the club to aim higher and raked in trophies after his arrival.

However, he met his first nightmare when the club was eliminated from the Saudi Super Cup to deny him of a chance to land his first silverware in his debut season at the club.

After the game, Rudi Garcia blamed the defeat on the dismal display by the players, including Cristiano Ronaldo for blanking goal-scoring chances.

After missing out of the Saudi Super Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo eyed the Saudi Pro League title but had to wrestle with their arch-rivals and Saudi Super Cup nemesis, Al-Ittihad.

The Saudi Pro League title race had narrowed down to Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad but it appears the club were losing the nerve to drive on against Al-Ittihad in the title race.

They lost the top spot to Al-Ittihad and were trailing by a point for weeks before they dropped points against Al Feiha and slip off the top spot by three points more.
