Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing himself to the limit in training, as he looks to score his first goal for Al-Nassr in Saudi Arabia. Despite drawing a blank in his first two matches for the club, the 37-year-old has not let up in his efforts to perform at his best. Ronaldo, who was named captain of Al-Nassr, is determined to help the team get back on track with a win against Al Fateh on Friday.
Ronaldo has taken to Instagram to share pictures of his training, captioning the post simply with “Hard work never stops.” The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has shown his determination to succeed, even in the face of criticism from fans of rival club Al-Ittihad.
Al-Nassr currently sits atop the Saudi Pro League after 14 games, one point ahead of Al-Hilal. Earlier this month, Ronaldo stated that his “work in Europe is done” after winning titles in several countries, but his manager Rudi Garcia has said that the striker will eventually return to Europe to finish his career.
Garcia has also warned the team to not constantly pass the ball to Ronaldo, as it can hinder the performance of the rest of the team. He stressed the importance of making the right decisions on the field, and finding the right balance between getting the ball to Ronaldo and allowing other players to contribute.
