Portuguese soccer superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, was seen hobbling off the field during Thursday’s Saudi Super Cup match between Al-Nassr and Al-Ittihad. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner appeared to have suffered a strain on his ankle after a strong tackle from an opponent. It remains unclear if the injury will force Ronaldo to miss any games.
The news is a blow for Ronaldo, who recently signed a massive $200 million contract with Al-Nassr after leaving Manchester United. Despite the move, the Portuguese icon has yet to score a goal in his first two official matches and only managed two shots during Thursday’s game.
In a recent exhibition game between the Riyadh All-Stars Team and Paris Saint-Germain, Cristiano Ronaldo, the world-famous player, got on the scoreboard twice. Despite this impressive feat, uncertainty remains about the effects of his recent ankle injury on Al-Nassr’s chances in their upcoming competitions.
Fans are eagerly waiting for news on Ronaldo’s health and hoping for a quick recovery. On February 3, Al-Nassr is scheduled to face Al-Fateh in the Saudi Pro League. The 37-year-old Ronaldo will be eager to make an impact and help his team maintain their lead in the title race.
With a hefty $200 million contract and a reputation as a legendary player, all eyes will be on Ronaldo as he strives to live up to his reputation and lead Al-Nassr to victory.
