Football Fans Claims Cristiano Ronaldo is “Finished” After Joining Al-Nassr


Social media went buzzing with some football fans claiming Cristiano Ronaldo is finished after he joined Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia.

Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Al-Nassr of Saudi Arabia on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The 37-year-old was linked to the Saudi club after Manchester United terminated his contract.

After a disappointing second stint with Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo fell out with Manchester United after struggling for game time under new Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag

He granted a controversial and bombshell interview with Piers Morgan, slamming the poor state of facilities and mismanagement at the club.

In the interview, Cristiano Ronaldo said he had no respect for Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag since the former Ajax manager did not respect him either.

After the controversial interview, Cristiano Ronaldo reached a mutual agreement with Manchester United to end his two-year contract with the club.

The seven times Ballon d’Or winner went to the World Cup with Portugal as a free agent after he agreed to the mutual contract termination.

After the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo trained at Real Madrid while he was linked to a potential move to Al-Nassr.

Now, he has been officially announced by Al-Nassr as the club’s new player after he agreed to the deal.

The move, which has been regarded as one of the biggest deals in football, will see him stay at the Saudi club until 2025.

A breakdown of the contract shows Cristiano Ronaldo will earn a whooping £173million yearly till 2025.

After the completion of the deal, Al-Nassr’s statement on Ronaldo reads;

“History in the making. This is a signing that will not only inspire our club to achieve greater success but inspire our league, our nation, and future generations, boys and girls, to be the best version of themselves.”

Reacting to the deal, Cristiano Ronaldo said;

“I’m thrilled for a new experience in a different league in a different country. The vision that Al Nassr has is very inspiring.

“I’m very excited to join my teammates, and to help the team achieve more success.”

Fabrizio Romano confirmed Ronaldo will earn up to €200million from the two-and-a-half-year deal, which will see him stay at the club until 2025.

Fans claim Cristiano Ronaldo is “finished” after the Saudi move

Hours after Al-Nassr announced the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, social media users took to their social media handles to mock how the career of Ronaldo has ended.

The hashtag, “finished” garnered over thousands of tweets in a matter of seconds, with fans mocking the five time Ballon d’Or winner of signing the deal with a league that is largely anonymous, and will sweep him off the spotlights.

Mark Goldbridge, wrote, “Ronaldo forcing his way out of Man United is very very sad. Clearly thought, he could get a decent club elsewhere, and has ended up accepting he is finished.”

DERRICK wrote, “Ronaldo fans should just accept their goat is finished and stop using his age as an excuse. Ibrahimovich and Thiago Silva are still dominating at 41 and 38 years.”

STN12 wrote, “After all the mouth that Ronaldo made…finished player.”

Honest Ronaldo Fan wrote, “No way it actually happened LMAO. Saudinaldo is finished now.”

Is Cristiano Ronaldo finished after the Saudi Move?

Before completing this move to Al-Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo was intent and hopeful of still playing in Europe’s top flight, with the UEFA Champions League in focus.

However, the offers were not yet coming from Europe, and Al-Nassr offered the former Manchester United star an alternative.

Cristiano Ronaldo is nearing the twilight of his career. A return to the European top flight is far off the horizon for Cristiano Ronaldo. While the beleaguered former Real Madrid star has landed the biggest football contracts, breathing life back into his career at Al Nassr will be difficult.

Al Nassr is a big club, but the Saudi league wants to leverage on Ronaldo’s popularity, not the other way round.
