Cristiano Ronaldo claims Saudi Pro League is better than Ligue 1!

Cristiano Ronaldo has made a bold statement, asserting that the Saudi Pro League is already superior to Ligue 1 in France.

It’s worth noting that Ronaldo has never played in the French top-flight. His remarks could be seen as a veiled dig at his former rival, Lionel Messi, who previously played for Paris Saint-Germain before moving to Inter Miami.

These comments from Ronaldo come in the wake of Jordan Henderson’s decision to leave the Pro League and return to Europe after only six months, joining Ajax from Al-Ettifaq.

In quotes cited by Fabrizio Romano, Ronaldo said during Dubai’s Globe Soccer Awards event on Friday: “The Saudi league is not worse than Ligue 1. The Saudi Pro League is more competitive than Ligue 1, I can say that after one year spent there. We are better than the French league already now.”

He added: “I feel so happy at Al Nassr, it’s a great move. Saudi is in a process, it will take long… but step by step they will go to the top level. I think the Saudi Pro League will be among top three leagues in the world. People in Saudi will be proud”.

Since joining Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo has made 44 appearances, scoring an impressive 38 goals and providing 13 assists during that period. Notably, he concluded the year 2023 as the leading goalscorer globally, surpassing notable names such as Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe.
