Cristiano Ronaldo has again thrown his weight around the Arab league which he compared to the league in his home country, Portugal.

Speaking at a press conference, Ronaldo stated that the Arab league is better than the Primeira Liga in his homeland as it has more quality players.

He said;

 “It’s normal to criticise, what league is not criticised? Where there aren’t problems and controversy? There are everywhere. Spain, Portugal. I already knew, I keep saying: everyone thought I was crazy, crazy isn’t so crazy… It’s already normal to play in the Saudi Arabian league.

“As an Al-Nassr player, I knew this was going to happen, it’s a privilege to change a country’s culture and football, to have great stars, it makes me proud. I was the pioneer and I feel proud of it. What I want most is to continue to evolve always, so that I can be at the top.

“I believe that the Arab League is better than the Portuguese one. It’s not just the controversy, there’s not so much fuss, the quality of the names is much better. I hope it can get better, I know it will be difficult. Possibly impossible. It turns out to be a circus what has been happening lately.”

Ronaldo joined Saudi club, Al-Nassr, in a lucrative deal in January after leaving Manchester United. Since he joined the club, the Saudi topflight has been able to lure big names like Karim Benzema, Neymar, N’Golo Kante, Aymeric Laporte, Ruben Neves, Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino, among many others.

The Portuguese football legend won his first title with Saudi Pro-League side Al-Nassr last month, when he lifted the Arab Club Champions Cup.
