Fans searched for a reason for Cristiano Ronaldo not playing, but later it became clear that the player was rested as part of managing the competition load. Rono was in the Al Nasr team that played in the Saudi Pro League match against Al Ahli FC on the 22nd of this month. Al Nasser’s coach decided to rest Rono for a game as playing without a significant break increases the risk of injury. The fact that Al Nasr had a game in the Saudi League three days after the King Cup match was also crucial in this decision.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s current age is thirty-eight years. Although he is still a step ahead of the younger players in terms of fitness, getting rest will make him stronger. Al Nasr’s top priority this time is to win the league title. They have a league game on Friday. A competitive break now will help Cristiano prepare for this match in the best possible way. Apart from Cristiano, Marcelo Brozovic was also rested by Al Nasser FC for one game. In their absence, Senegal superstar Sadio Mane is Al Nasr’s leader.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al Nasser FC in January this year, led the club to the Arab Club Champions Cup last time. Ronaldo was also the top scorer in this tournament. It was the first Arab Club Champions title in the history of Al Nasr Club.
The star is also shining in the Saudi Pro League in 2023-24. Ronaldo has scored nine goals in six matches so far. He is currently the top scorer in the league. The Portuguese star also topped the list with four assists. Cristiano’s winger Al Nasser are fifth in the league table with 15 points from seven games. Al Nasr’s impressive comeback comes after losing the first two matches.
At the same time, Al Nasser won a huge victory in the King Cup match where Cristiano Ronaldo did not play. Al Nasr defeated Saudi Arabian second division club Ohod. Cristiano’s team defeated relatively weak Ohod by five goals to one. Sadio Mane scored Al Nasr’s first goal from the penalty spot.
