Cristiano was not included in the Al-Nasr squad for two reasons. Firstly, he has yet to serve a two-match suspension earned while playing for Manchester United, which applies to all tournaments under the auspices of FIFA.
Secondly, the Saudi club needs to get rid of one or two foreign players in order to declare Ronaldo. At the moment, the Colombian David Ospina, former Napoli goalkeeper, the Brazilians Luis Gustavo and Anderson Talisca, the Cameroonian Vincent Abubakar and the midfielder of the Uzbekistan national team, Jaloliddin Masharipov, play for the Blue Jays.
Recall: Ronaldo moved to Al-Nasr at the end of December and signed a contract until June 2025.
