When did Cristiano Ronaldo make his Al-Nassr debut?
Unsurprisingly, Ronaldo was eager to get going as soon as he touched down in Riyadh, suggesting at his unveiling press conference that head coach Rudi Garcia could throw him straight into the team for the very next game.
However, he had to wait for his debut for Al-Nassr, with a two-match ban incurred during his time at Manchester United following him to Saudi Arabia. That sanction, arising from an incident where he was found to have smashed the phone of an Everton fan, ensured he was unavailable for games on January 6 and January 14.
He sat out the game against Al-Tai at a rain-soaked Mrsool Park and also missed the next game against Al-Shabab, so his Al-Nassr debut finally came on January 22, against Al-Ettifaq.
Ronaldo made his Saudi debut for the Riyadh All-Star team in a friendly against Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain on January 19. Ronaldo was captain ofthe team , which was made up of Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal players.
He scored two goals and looked impressive in the 60-minute display, appearing to enjoy the chance to face off against his perennial rival once more.
How long is Cristiano Ronaldo's contract with Al-Nassr?
Ronaldo has agreed a deal with Al-Nassr that will see him remain at the club until 2025.
That means he will be available to help the club in the AFC Champions League next season, should they qualify.
