Cristiano Ronaldo betrayed himself and with it killed the greatness of football

Date: February 7, 2023 Time: 07:15:01

Cristiano Ronaldo is an inspiration, an idol and a role model for hundreds of millions of people around the world, who in every interview do not hide their desire to win as many trophies as possible and break as many records as possible. And in a scandalous recent interview with Piers Morgan, after Manchester United terminated the Portuguese’s contract, CR7 stated that he definitely plans to play until he is 40 years old. But who could have imagined that his career would end like this?

Cristiano is leading a fantastic career that any footballer can dream of, but not even he could finally resist the temptation of large sums of money and follow the Arab path already followed by other stars. Perhaps his agents really tried to sign Ronaldo to the best European clubs, but there were no candidates and he himself did not want to go to mid-caliber teams. But still, you can blame the CR7 for something.

The desire to win as much as possible is the norm for any athlete, but the context and conditions for this are important. Let’s start with the fact that Cristiano has long been one of the richest (and probably the richest) football players on the planet, and end with the fact that Saudi Arabia is far from the most obvious choice, albeit to earn a happy retirement. Al-Nasr, according to various sources, gives Krish from 70 to 200 million euros a year, but by accepting this salary, Ronaldo completely ruined his sporting principles. Yesterday, Ronaldo gave Manchester United an ultimatum, because he did not want to miss out on the season in the Champions League, and today he agrees to an uncompetitive and practically unpromising championship. Perhaps Ronaldo wants to feel his best again, but what is the joy of having players who have never even played in Europe on the pitch? His choice would be more understandable and explainable if he even went to MLS, where there is enough money, shows, unpredictability and very high-level players, but no, Cristiano rejected the US.

And yet, you shouldn’t go too far and belittle Ronaldo’s dignity, especially in comparison to arch-rival Lionel Messi. Of course, the Argentine is now “on horseback”, because he won the World Cup and in the spring he will compete for the Champions League in one of the best teams in the world, but we must not forget that Lionel is two years old. younger. And it is not known what will happen to Messi in these same two years, because the recession can come at any time when we talk about footballers whose age is over 35 years.

In 2015, KriRo spoke ill of Xavi’s move to the Qatar Championship, but if the Spaniard did it after the treble and the Camp Nou said goodbye to him as a legend, then Ronaldo went to Saudi Arabia after a humiliating interview, a World Cup failed. and a few broken shreds of reputation. Ronaldo killed the whole concept of his career, betrayed his principles and “changed shoes”, and with this his greatness died, because only football legends know how to recognize their setback, and at the same time finish great football on time. Unfortunately, at the age of 37, Cristiano had not learned to admit his weaknesses.
