Ronaldo: “I’m not returning to Europe, the quality has dropped – I raised the interest in S. Arabia”


He has anything but regretted it Cristiano Ronaldo for his decision to play at Saudi Arabia. The Portuguese superstar, who last December signed a “golden” contract until 2025 with Al Nasrruled out playing in Europe again, while referring to how this transfer opened the door for other stars to move to the Saudi League.

I am not going back to European football, that door is closed for me for good. I am now 38 years old and European football has lost a lot of its quality. Only the Premier League remains very strong and is well ahead of the other leagues”, CR7 pointed out.

I was criticized for going to Saudi Arabia but you see what happened? I opened the way and now all the players are coming here. Within a year more and more players are now moving to the Saudi League. In a year it will surpass the Turkish and Dutch leagues, while it is better than the MLS. The players who came are not, as they say, only big ones. Zota and Ruben Neves, for example, are young. My decision was 100% decisive for new frontline players to come. This is a fact! When I went to Juventus, Serie A was… dead and after I signed it was reborn. Wherever Cristiano goes, he causes the greatest interest!“, he added.
