Cristiano Ronaldo, the world-famous Al-Nassr striker, has spoken up about his experience of playing in the Saudi Pro League (SPL).
Ronaldo moved to the Middle Eastern club as a free agent after the 2022 World Cup.
The 38-year-old has made 10 games for his new club Al-Nassr, scoring nine goals and providing two assists and recently received the award for the best player of the month of February.
The former Real Madrid, Manchester United and Juventus forward, who is currently on international duty with Portugal, has compared the SPL with the Premier League.
Ronaldo said the two leagues are not of the same level but claimed that he has been surprised by his experience in Saudi Arabia.
“Saudi League is not the Premier League, I am not going to lie. But it’s a league that has left me positively surprised.
“It can become a very big league because of how much they want to keep improving,” Ronaldo told reporters in Portugal.
