With the bitter farewell of the Portuguese team from the World Cup in Qatar on Saturday, Fernando Santos’ students left Doha for Lisbon today without Ronaldo and a few other players, and the star of this team stayed in Qatar with his family to make his final decision for the future.
After losing to Morocco in the quarter-finals and eliminating his team from the Qatar World Cup, Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo stayed in Qatar with his family to decide on his professional future after a vacation.
Despite the Portuguese star’s denial of an astronomical agreement with Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nasr, there have been rumors that Ronaldo is left with two options: saying goodbye to football forever and accepting the astronomical salary offer of Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nasr team.
The Al-Nasr team has offered Ronaldo a two-and-a-half-year salary with an annual salary of 200 million euros, but the Portuguese player has not yet given a definitive answer to this offer.
After joining Manchester United and shining in the Premier League last season by scoring 24 goals, Ronaldo had a problem with the head coach of this team this season, and after a long time on the bench and an interview he did with his favorite journalist Piers Morgan in November. His contract was unilaterally terminated by the managers of the Red Devils and he has now become a free player.
Considering the high salary of this 37-year-old Portuguese star, no team except Al-Nasr can hire him, and the only offer he has received is from this team.
Ronaldo’s teammates in the Portugal team claimed that after losing to Morocco and eliminating this team from the World Cup in Qatar, Cristiano Ronaldo said in the dressing room that he will leave football forever. Although his friends in the Portuguese team have dissuaded this player from making emotional decisions for now, Ronaldo stayed in Qatar to make the right decision for his future.
It is not yet clear whether one of the most proud players in the world intends to continue playing or will leave football by being excluded from the World Cup. In any case, Ronaldo does not deserve such a farewell to football and at least he deserves a grand farewell from the world of football.
