Cristiano Ronaldo’s mysterious message leaves fans guessing after Al Nasser’s title setback

Cristiano Ronaldo took to social media following Al Nassr’s loss to Saudi Pro League championship rivals Al Ittihad to share a subtle message. The message has sent fans wondering as to the purpose of the message.

The former Manchester United legend led his new side to their second loss in Jeddah since moving to Saudi Arabia. Former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s team Al Ittihad jumped ahead of their city rivals with a goal from Romarinho in the 80th minute. Both defeats came against Al Ittihad.

In January, Al-Ittihad eliminated Al-Nassr from the Saudi Super Cup. With 10 games remaining, one point separates the two clubs atop the table halfway through the season, and Ronaldo has now emphasized the importance of focusing on what counts for the next games.

What did Cristiano Ronaldo write?

Ronaldo shared photos of his workout sessions with the caption, “Focus on the outcome, not the obstacles.” He did the workout sessions in Al Nassr’s training outfit.

Ronaldo’s message clearly indicates he isn’t going to give up. The Portuguese striker is known for coming up clutch whenever his team is behind, and it seems he is taking the Saudi league challenge seriously.

Earlier, just after the defeat, Ronaldo didn’t hide his disappointment at the loss. He shared a photo of the team huddling, and the caption read, “Disappointed with the result, but we stay focused on our season and the games ahead. Thank you Al Nassr fans for your support, we know we can count on you!”

Al Nassr lacked any attacking threat in that game, and Ronaldo was visibly frustrated. It was made worse when the crowd in the stadium started chanting his rival Lionel Messi’s name, causing him to raise his hands in confusion.

As the match ended, he kicked some water bottles in anger, and when his teammates came to console him, he simply left. He then came back to applaud the fans for their support showing some class.

How has Cristiano been in the Saudi Pro League so far?

Ronaldo signed a massive contract with Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr after leaving Manchester United due to a controversial interview with Piers Morgan in November. He became the world’s highest-paid player and has enjoyed a lot of freedom in the new country.

Cristiano had a dream start to life and scored eight goals, including two hat tricks in the Saudi Pro League. He even won the player of the Month award for February for his eight goals and two assists.
