Neville: Ronaldo’s departure was laced with regret.
Gary Neville confesses he was disappointed that Cristiano Ronaldo would no longer be playing at the highest level of football after his transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr. Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville remarked on Friday Night Football that Ronaldo’s departure was sad but unavoidable as he sealed a transfer to Al Nassr. We’re going to see a lot less of him,” Neville said. “It informs us a few things. The first is how serious Saudi Arabia is about football.
They’re not going anywhere. They’ve spent £350 million on one player. They are attempting to fortify the league.” But, for Cristiano Ronaldo, I believe he would prefer to remain in one of Europe’s major leagues for the balance of the season and score more goals. “Perhaps locate a Champions League club.” It informs me that the offer is enormous. Perhaps the club he desired in Europe did not come in for him, and this was his last alternative.
There’s a sense of melancholy in that we’ve probably seen the last of Ronaldo playing at the highest level. I believe we might have continued to see it at Old Trafford had both sides handled things differently. That had to stop, and it had to end before the World Cup. In the end, it was unavoidable. In some ways, it’s a tragic conclusion for him, Jamie Carragher remarked. Messi and Ronaldo are two of the best players of all time. Ronaldo ended his career during an interview with Piers Morgan, and Messi won the World Cup. It’s not the finest way to say goodbye.
