Al-Nassr assistant coach, Stephane Jobard, has revealed the club’s new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude in training.
Ronaldo recently joined Saudi Arabia’s club after being sacked by Manchester United following his exclusive interview with Piers Morgan.
Earlier this month, Ronaldo signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al-Nassr worth a reported €200 million per year.
As a result of his arrival at Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian league has gained international attention.
After a few training sessions with Ronaldo, Jobard found the Portugal captain humble and willing to get going on the pitch.
“In training, Cristiano Ronaldo made a mistake, and I told him that it was only necessary to touch the ball,” Jobard was quoted by Sportskeeda as saying.
“He pointed with his thumb up and said: ‘Well, coach..’ and I felt that this humble man wanted to perform on the field.”
Jobard continued, “In training, I passed a ball to the legend Cristiano Ronaldo, and he scored it, then I came to him and thanked him for scoring, and I can tell my children about this.”
Ronaldo, 37, is yet to make his debut for his new club Al-Nassr.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to make his debut in Saudi Arabia by playing for an exhibition team against Paris Saint-Germain, which could involve Lionel Messi.
