Premier League Club Boss Savages Ronaldo, Tells Him ‘He’s Not Unique’ Despite His Achievements
- West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has criticised Cristiano Ronaldo for calling himself a 'unique' player
- Ronaldo claimed he turned down offers from around the world to sign his 'unique' contract with Al-Nassr
- The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid forward is yet to find his feet in Saudi Arabia, blanking in his first two games
Al-Nassr forward Cristiano Ronaldo has brutally been told he is not unique by West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady.
The 37-year-old in his maiden press conference as a player of Al-Nassr claimed his eye-watering £175 million-a-year deal is unique, hence making him a unique player.
However, Ronaldo's 'unique' claims have been rubbished by Karren, who reckons the five-time Ballon d'Or winner doesn't do anything extraterrestrial.
"Maybe there’s a lot to like about Ronaldo," she wrote in her column for The Sun as quoted by SportBIBLE.

Despite admitting the Real Madrid legend is perhaps the greatest goalscorer the game has ever witnessed, she was quick to note that his statements underline Ronaldo's excessive pride.
"He’s athletic and an unstoppable goalscorer. But this recent comment reeks of conceit: ‘I’m happy, proud to join Al Nassr...This contract is unique because I am a unique player. It’s normal for me.’
Karren suggested with an unerring assurance that Ronaldo is ordinary while juxtaposing the Portuguese to his rival Lionel Messi.
"For a start, he isn’t a unique player. He does most things well and some brilliantly but nothing others can’t or haven’t. Neither Messi nor Pele would say anything like this."
How has Ronaldo performed at Al-Nassr?
After notching a brace in a lucrative friendly match between Riyadh XI against Lionel Messi's Paris Saint-Germain, Ronaldo has been underwhelming.
He has failed to register a goal in two competitive games and has seen his side dumped out of the Saudi Super Cup, ESPN reports.
Ronaldo's next destination confirmed
Cristiano Ronaldo is bound to return to Europe to round up his career, Al-Nassr manager Rudi Garcia has revealed.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner and Real Madrid's all-time record goal scorer had an inch-perfect career in Europe, causing records to seamlessly tumble before him.
On his arrival at Al-Nassr, the 37-year-old stated emphatically his time in Europe is done, hence his sojourn in Saudi Arabia, per Indian Express.
Cristiano invites 4 United stars
Sports Brief earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly invited four Manchester United stars to Al-Nassr game to say a proper goodbye to them.
The veteran striker completed a stunning move to Saudi Arabia in January after his abrupt Manchester United exit.
SunSport now reports that the Portugal international is arranging a reunion with some of his closest friends at Man United.
