Stephane Jobard, an assistant coach at Al-Nassr, has spoken candidly about the training attitude of the club’s new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Goldennewsng reports that Ronaldo recently agreed to a €200 million annual contract with Al-Nassr for two and a half years.
The Saudi Arabian league has gained worldwide attention since his arrival at Al-Nassr.
Jobard met Portugal captain Ronaldo in a few training sessions and found him to be humble and eager to play.
Sportskeeda quoted Jobard as saying, “In training, Cristiano Ronaldo made a mistake, and I told him that it was only necessary to touch the ball.”
He said, “He pointed with his thumb up. Well, coach, and I sensed this humble man’s desire to perform on the field.”
Jobard went on to say, “In training, I passed a ball to the legend Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored it. After that, I came to him and thanked him for scoring, and I can tell my children about this.”
Ronaldo, 37, has not yet made his first appearance for his new team, Al-Nassr.
