Cristiano Ronaldo Praises Saudi Pro League Over MLS Following Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami Unveiling on July 16. Ronaldo Rules Out European Return, Cites Premier League as Exception.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League earlier this year, expressed his belief that the Saudi league is superior to the MLS in a post-match interview after playing against Celta Vigo.
The former Real Madrid and Barcelona rivals, Ronaldo and Messi, have now embarked on separate journeys, with Messi recently being unveiled as an Inter Miami player to a jubilant crowd of around 20,000 fans during the event called “La PresentaSIon.”
Ronaldo’s move to the Saudi Pro League appears to have sparked a surge in talent joining the league, with notable names such as Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, and Ruben Neves joining other teams like Al-Ittihad and Al-Hilal.
Ronaldo expressed his satisfaction with this development, claiming that he paved the way for other players to consider the Saudi league.
Furthermore, Ronaldo asserted that he has no plans to return to European football, as he believes that the overall quality has significantly declined, except for the English Premier League, which he acknowledged as being ahead of other leagues.
At 38 years old, Ronaldo firmly stated that he won’t be making a comeback to any European club.
