A popular Greek legend tells the story of Atlas, a titan banished to the underworld by Zeus with the eternal punishment of carrying the world on his shoulders. This brings us to the latest update on Cristiano Ronaldo, a man who has been cursed to squarely carry his team on his shoulders.Bet On the Saudi Pro League Here!
Cristiano Ronaldo's career story which was supposed to end in glory almost concluded in disgrace, save the timely intervention of the Saudi side, Al Nassr, who capitalized on the Portuguese's misfortune to swab him over.
Since the departure of the six-time Ballon D'Or winner from Manchester United, the ex-Real Madrid talisman has seemed to blossom. Ronaldo Ronaldo struggled to find his footing in the beginning- to the point some of his fans were beginning to express doubt in him, claiming his glory days were over and his prime was past. However, as time passed, the father of three began to establish himself in the hearts of the Al Nassr faithfuls.
Not too long ago, he scored four goals in a game against Al Wehda. This is something he has not done since 2019 in his early days in Real Madrid. Two days ago, he scored a First Half hattrick against Damac - a feat that has never been achieved in the Saudi Pro League. In twenty-six minutes, the Portuguese born has slotted all three goals home, with the stadium almost erupting in euphoric ecstasy as the fans screamed "Siuuuuu!"
Many say it was the perfect birthday gift he could give himself, having celebrated his birthday earlier on. In the bliss of the moment, it is believed that Ronaldo's performance against Damac is his best so far as the three-goal lead shot his team to the first position - making his management vision upon his acquisition come to pass. In a recent Instagram post where he wished his Saudi fans a Happy Founders day, he posted a picture of himself, wearing a traditional shawl and holding a staff with something we have not seen in a while - his smile.
At the moment, everything seems to be in place. His respect, fan love, happiness, and comfort. Recall that in his exclusive interview with Piers Morgan, he revealed that the atmosphere in Manchester United was toxic and that he felt betrayed by some of his teammates and senior management members of the team's administration. This was apart from his altercation with Eric Ten Haag, who didn't waste any time expressing utter distaste for Ronaldo and his shenanigans.Bet on Al Nassr to Win the Saudi Pro League!
All these seem to be behind Ronaldo who found happiness behind Al Nassr's doors despite his ugly misfortune in recent times - his Manchester United disgrace, loss of his son, and internal struggles to stand on his feet amidst the never-dwindling noise of his Messi-Ronaldo Saga
Happiness indeed can be found in the most unusual places - or so we think because no matter the complexity of the situation, a golden fish has no hiding place.
