Ronaldo’s Thoughts on Saudi Pro League
In an interview with Lisbon sports newspaper A Bola, Ronaldo expressed his opinion on the Saudi Pro League. He believes it is more competitive than Major League Soccer, saying, “Returning to Europe, for me, is a closed possibility… The Saudi championship is much better than the USA.”
