Manchester United ex player Cristiano Ronaldo has become an ambassador of the Saudi Pro League, since the tournament attracts more and more players to face a new challenge at the country despite the Ronaldo’s team, Al Nassr didn’t reach the trophy last season, and Al Ittihad continued its hegemony in the Saudi league.

In this sense, Al Nassr is currently preparing next season and playing some friendly games with European teams to seize its real level after having completed several signings in the transfer market. With that intention, in the last few hours Al Nassr played a game against the Spanish team Celta de Vigo, which the Ronaldo’s team lost, and the Portuguese superstar took the chance to speak to the media about the growth of the Saudi league and commenting his impressions about the recent signing of Leo Messi for Inter Miami at MLS.

Ronaldo recognized that the MLS could experience a potential boost with Leo Messi’s arrival, but he insisted the North American tournament is still far from the level that the Saudi League can reach:  "It is much better than the MLS. In a year more top players will come to Arabia and it will be better than the Turkish or the Dutch league", concluded the Portuguese footballer.

Cristiano Ronaldo rejected his potential return to European football

The ex Manchester United player also spoke about the current level of European football and the Premier League, giving a controversial opinion about them which has shocked the fans in the last few hours. “Europe has lost a lot of quality. The only league that is one of the best is the Premier League. The Spanish LaLiga has lost its level, the Portuguese one is not top, the German one has also lost a lot of quality...", stated Ronaldo, who insists on staying at the Saudi Pro League, where he considers he will follow for some more years.
