Reasons Why Cristiano Ronaldo Struggled On His Al Nassr Debut Explained

Rudi Garcia, the manager of Al Nassr, has claimed that his team tried too hard to include Cristiano Ronaldo in his debut for the Saudi Arabian club.

After serving his suspension for slapping the phone out of an Everton fan’s hand in England, Ronaldo made his long-awaited debut for Al Nassr in Sunday’s 1-0 win over Ettifaq but failed to score.

The 37-year-old was given the captain’s armband for the game but spent the majority of the 90 minutes on the sidelines, and Garcia admitted that his team needs to figure out how to play alongside Ronaldo.

“It’s critical that the players play normally and don’t always try to give the ball to Cristiano,” the manager told reporters. “I told them they had to make the right decisions on the field. Obviously, if Cristiano or Talisca are alone and ask for the ball, we must give it to them. These two players have the ability to make a difference.

“Tonight, I think that sometimes we had good positions to cross but not enough people in the box – and sometimes no Ronaldo and no Talisca. We need to work on that so that one of them is in the box and the other is playing outside of it.”

“Everyone recognizes Cristiano – he’s a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, after all.” “Garcia went on. “He is one of the greatest football players in history. It is our responsibility to ensure that he arrives in the best possible condition. I want him to enjoy playing here, and he was excited to play for the first time tonight.
