‘Rumor of Return to Europe’ Ronaldo Sets New Record for Most Goals in Saudi Arabia! Scored 35 Goals

May 28, 2024 | by

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (Al-Nasr), who has recently been rumored to return to Europe, set a new record for the most goals scored in a season in the Saudi Arabian professional league.

Ronaldo scored multiple goals in the match against Riyadh in the 2023-2024 season in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and led the team to a 4-2 victory. Ronaldo has scored 35 goals.

British broadcaster BBC reported, “Ronaldo set a new Saudi professional league scoring record. Ronaldo left Manchester United and joined Al-Nasr on a free agent in January 2023. Since then, he has scored 64 goals in all 69 matches.”

Al-Nasr finished second despite Ronaldo’s strong performance.
Ronaldo scored 35 goals and 11 assists in 31 league games alone. Abdelazak Hamdallah’s 34 goals in the 2018-2019 season was the previous record.

BBC reported, “Ronaldo has scored a total of 765 goals over the past 22 years, playing for Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus. He has scored 128 goals in 206 games for Portugal. He also holds the record for most goals scored in international competitions.” Ronaldo is expected to join Euro 2024 this summer and add A-match scores. 토토사이트

Ronaldo has recently been linked to Leverkusen, the winner of the Bundesliga. Leverkusen won the Bundesliga unbeaten in the 2023-2024 season. He will play in the Champions League next season. The Spanish edition of Fox Sports speculated that Xavi Alonso, the coach of Leverkusen, might be interested in recruiting Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, was involved in a dispute because he still did not receive his salary during his time at Juventus.

British sports media “The Athletic” reported on the 24th that “Juventus plans to challenge the order to pay 9.8 million euros (about 14.5 billion won) in unpaid wages for Ronaldo.”

Ronaldo has spent three seasons with Juventus since 2018. He has won two Serie A titles.

Juventus was struggling with financial difficulties as the COVID pandemic overlapped.

According to the BBC, when Ronaldo was a member of Serie A Juventus in the 2020-2021 season, he agreed to postpone his wage due to the suspension of the league due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BBC said, “Ronaldo claimed he was not paid more than 17 million pounds (about 30 billion won). The court decided that the club should pay the amount excluding taxes and other deductions.”

This is the story of last April. Juventus did not intend to follow suit.

Ronaldo played for Juventus briefly after Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Ronaldo returned to the professional league in Saudi Arabia in 2021 and advanced to the professional league in 2023. Ronaldo is known to earn 176 million pounds a year.

Ronaldo has moved to Saudi Arabia, the outskirts of the world’s soccer, but is still drawing keen attention. Recently, he elbow-beating an opponent, received a red card, and waved a fist behind a referee, drawing the laughter of soccer fans around the world.

“Juventus’ legal team plans to review and challenge the decision made last month,” The Athletic said.
