Legendary German goalkeeper, Oliver Kahn spent time with former Bayern Munich winger, Sadio Mane during his recent visit to Saudi Arabia.

The 54-year-old also met five-time Ballon d'Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Thanks to Al Nassr for hosting me during a training session and showing me their facilities. I had the time to meet up with Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane. Now back in Germany. It will be interesting to see how Saudi Pro League will develop in the future," Kahn wrote on social media.

Both Mane and Kahn left the Bavarians at the end of the season following a turbulent 2022/23 campaign in the Bundesliga and elsewhere in Europe.

Meanwhile, Al-Nassr travelled to Tehran on Monday ahead of their AFC Champions League clash against Iranian giants Persepolis, as reported by CBS Sports.

The African champions drew with Rwanda in the final AFCON qualifier and lost to Algeria in a friendly at the Abdoulaye Wade Stadium.
