Why did Ronaldo pay a visit to the women's team?

Al-Nassr's women's football team, formerly known as Al Mamlaka, are two games away from clinching their second successive league title.

The Riyadh-based side currently boasts 29 points after 12 matches with an impressive 46-goal difference, per SAFF.

Cristiano's next destination revealed

Cristiano Ronaldo is bound to return to Europe to round up his career, Al-Nassr boss Rudi Garcia has disclosed.

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.

Garcia, 58, who has already criticised Ronaldo for his side's exit in the Saudi Super Cup, believes the ex-Real Madrid and Man United ace will not retire at Al-Nassr.

Ronaldo faulted for Al-Nassr defeat

Al-Nassr coach, Rudi Garcia has appeared to put the blame for his side's elimination from the Saudi Super Cup on Cristiano Ronaldo, Sports Brief earlier reported.

Garcia's charges, led by their new superstar, were dumped out of the competition at the semi-final stage following a 3-1 loss to Al-Ittihad on Thursday evening.

Reflecting on his side's exit, the 58-year-old tactician identified a chance missed by Ronaldo as the moment which turned the tie away from Al-Nassr's favour.
