Restless Ronaldo still hope for European league return



Al-Nassr may not be the final bus stop for the increasingly nomadic Cristiano Ronaldo who made a dramatic switch to Saudi Arabia few weeks ago.

The move to Al-Nassr was Ronaldo’s fourth switch since his first stint at Manchester United. He had been with Real Madrid, Juventus and then a return to Manchester United before the current one.

Even his current coach at Al-Nassr, Rudi Garcia, knows that Ronaldo’s stay is temporal.

The  coach has claimed that the forward will ‘go back to Europe’ before retiring from football.

The superstar forward only secured a move to the Saudi Arabian side last month but it seems talks over his future have already begun to circulate. 

And, this time, it’s his own coach that has added fuel to the fire after Garcia  suggested that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner will have one final stint in Europe before hanging up his boots.

According to SPORT, Al-Nassr head coach Garcia said: ‘Cristiano Ronaldo is a positive addition as he helps disperse defenders. 

Al-Nassr’s next fixture sees Ronaldo’s team travelling to Al Fateh on Friday, while his former United colleagues face Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in midweek.
