Cristiano Ronaldo, a well-known Portuguese soccer star, will be announcing his retirement in the coming days, marking the end of an era in the sport’s history. The second-best soccer player over the past 15 years will be leaving his million-dollar deal with the Arab team Al Nassr, according to a number of sports media outlets.
Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have finally calmed down and accepted that he is no longer the same person, that his legacy is amazing but that it does not help him to be an elite player today, after a few years of vanity and denial. Consequently, it appears that he will accept his retirement following the disastrous experience he is having in the Saudi Arabian soccer league.
It was the defeat of his squad by Al Wehda in the King Cup semifinals—the competition’s equivalent to Spain’s King’s Cup. The Portuguese athlete, as usual, places the blame on the other players, but at this point he is unable to conceal his subpar performance.
Ronaldo chastised the coach of his squad for the style of play they were using. Even the Al-Nassr management just fired Rudi Garcia on the player’s explicit request from Portugal. However, time has proven that Garcia was unrelated to the underwhelming performance of the former Real Madrid FC star.
Cristiano Ronaldo is willing to forgo the 200 million euros per year he has agreed to join Al Nassr in order to retire permanently at the age of 38 and focus only on his family.
However, there has been speculation that he would split his time between Madrid and Madeira, serving as an ambassador for the club that helped launch his professional career
