‘Spiritual leader of Al Nassr’: Freestyle footballer praises Ronaldo

Freestyle footballer Do Kim Phuc has praised star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, saying that he “is a like a spiritual leader at Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr”.

The statement came after Phuc was offered to meet Ronaldo and watch him train.

“It was a strange feeling, since it was a private training session, and nobody was allowed to record anything. Ronaldo is like a spiritual leader of Al Nassr. He moved around, trained with every small group, and encouraged his teammates,” Do Kim Phuc was quoted as saying by

Ronaldo signed for Al Nassr in a deal believed to be worth more than 200 million euros in December last year. The Portuguese penned a contract that will take him to June 2025.

He notched up 14 goals in 16 games this season, but it could not help his side claim the Saudi Pro League (SPL) title, with Al Nassr finishing second behind Al Ittihad.

Ronaldo headed to the Gulf after being relegated to the bench for Portugal and cut adrift by Manchester United in 2022.

United parted ways with the Portuguese star after the veteran forward gave an explosive TV interview in which he said he felt “betrayed” by the club and had no respect for coach Erik Ten Hag.

United terminated his contract while Ronaldo was with Portugal at the last year’s FIFA World Cup.

Earlier, Ronaldo said that he was enjoying his time in Saudi Arabia.
