Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane have clearly settled into their new lives in Saudi Arabia, with the Al-Nassr stars donning traditional Saudi attire alongside their teammates in a new video.

The Knights of Najd have assembled a star-studded team, with the Portuguese veteran blazing a trail as the first major player to join the club in December 2022.

Ronaldo has been credited for influencing other stars to move to the Saudi Pro League, with the likes of Mane, Neymar Jr., and others joining him in the Middle East in the summer.

In a video uploaded by Al-Nassr on their official page on X (formerly Twitter) to showcase the team and the culture, the two superstars were seen wearing a thobe.

Ronaldo was seen donning a black bisht over a white thobe and holding a sword, while Mane opted for a butter-coloured bisht over a white thobe.

Marcelo Brozovic, Otavio, Talisca, and Alex Telles were also included in the video, all appearing in Saudi traditional attire.

The Knights of Najd are preparing for their next game in the Saudi Pro League after defeating Persepolis in the AFC Champions League on Tuesday.

Al-Nassr will face Al-Ahli in a must-win game on Friday, September 22, according to Transfermarkt.

Ronaldo performs Saudi traditional dance

Sports Brief also reported on Ronaldo showcasing his appreciation for Saudi culture by performing a traditional dance after scoring two goals for Al-Nassr in their Saudi Pro League match against Al-Shabab.

The Portuguese veteran and club captain, who has been in excellent goal-scoring form since the start of the new season, played a pivotal role in the Knights of Najd's dominant win at home at Al-Awwal Park.

Following his accurate penalty kick, Ronaldo momentarily set aside his signature 'Siuuu' celebration and other newer styles in favour of showcasing Saudi Arabian culture - by displaying his dancing skills.
