Since Ronaldo started playing in the Saudi League, I haven't talked much about him. Today, let's focus on the Saudi League and see how Ronaldo is doing there.

To conclude, Ronaldo is doing quite well in Saudi Arabia, but including this year, he has gone two consecutive seasons without winning a title. In the Saudi King's Cup final, which started at 1 a.m. on June 1st, Al-Nassr, Ronaldo's team, lost 4-5 in a penalty shootout to Al-Hilal, missing out on the championship once again. Ronaldo also continued his curse of not scoring against Al-Hilal, making it three consecutive seasons without a title.

Does this mean Ronaldo's performance has been poor? Not at all. According to statistics, Ronaldo has played 51 matches for Al-Nassr in all competitions, scoring a total of 50 goals and providing 14 assists, directly contributing to 64 goals. In the Saudi League alone, he has made 31 appearances, scoring 35 goals and providing 12 assists. The last time he achieved such a feat was in the 2015/16 season with Real Madrid, where he played 48 matches, scoring 51 goals and providing 15 assists. He certainly deserves the €200 million annual salary Al-Nassr is paying him.

However, despite Ronaldo's impressive performance, it hasn't translated into championships for the team. After the King's Cup final loss, Ronaldo still showed his dissatisfaction. Considering that many European players go to Saudi Arabia just to earn money and don't play as hard as they did in Europe, we can see that Ronaldo's desire to win and his professional attitude are top-notch. It is precisely this quality that makes Ronaldo a legendary figure, unmatched by most other stars.

The fans are just 11 individuals, let alone Ronaldo's age is getting up there. Even if he can play a role in turning things around, it's not realistic to constantly rely on him alone.

The role of a talented individual is crucial, but if there are too many mediocre teammates around or if the players don't cooperate well or even fight with each other, how can the team truly excel!

To be honest, my heart really goes out to my idol Cristiano Ronaldo. The way he was crying on the ground at the end, it's really heart-wrenching. Ronaldo has always been the epitome of professionalism for all Ronaldo fans worldwide. Looking back at Ronaldo's career, what competition hasn't he participated in? He's won the European Championship, the Europa League, countless Champions League titles, and numerous league championships. He's even won the Ballon d'Or five times. As such a versatile player, what scene hasn't he seen? But it's Ronaldo's never-say-die spirit that makes all the Saudi fans believe that bringing in Ronaldo is absolutely worth it.

On the other hand, looking at Neymar, he's earning a sky-high salary, but he's frequently injured. Everyone knows it's because of his lifestyle—partying and drinking every day. Neymar is essentially finished now, just enjoying life. And yet, he's still winning three championships while lying down. He even posted on his social media thanking the team, which is just ridiculous. But Ronaldo's performance is there for all to see. He's constantly creating opportunities for the team to win. Although the final result wasn't what we hoped for, everyone acknowledges Ronaldo's contribution to the team.

To be honest, winning the Saudi league championship doesn't mean much to us. It's not a mainstream league, nor is it a very famous competition. If it weren't for Ronaldo joining the team, we wouldn't even know about the Saudi league or pay attention to it. Regardless, I think Ronaldo has done his best. I hope he can win more championships in his career next year!

At least Ronaldo is very dedicated to the team and his profession. I can only say those who want to just coast through haven't fully shown their abilities yet.

Cristiano Ronaldo has already come a long way. At this point, he's just going with the flow, content with what he has achieved.

Cristiano Ronaldo possesses strong individual abilities and is a disciplined player, which enables him to score goals prolifically even at the age of 39. However, Ronaldo's goal-scoring relies on support from teammates, and he himself may not significantly elevate the team's performance. Therefore, it can be said that Riyadh Victory has turned Ronaldo into a goal-scoring machine, but unfortunately, it has not translated into great team achievements.

During Ronaldo's time at Real Madrid, the team was already strong, boasting the world's best midfield trio. This allowed Ronaldo to receive continuous supply of balls while maintaining a balance between offense and defense. Coupled with outstanding performances from other players, this led to Real Madrid's historic three consecutive UEFA Champions League titles, resulting in both personal accolades and team honors for Ronaldo.

However, after Ronaldo joined Manchester United, although he scored many goals in his first season, the team failed to secure a top-four position in the league and missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification. In the second season, Ten Hag directly replaced Ronaldo, and Manchester United finished third in the league. This indicates that as Ronaldo aged, his impressive individual statistics somewhat consumed the team's resources, thereby affecting the team's performance.

The level of the Saudi league is relatively lower compared to Europe, but Riyadh Victory's opponents were evenly matched. With Riyadh Victory winning 31 out of 34 league matches and accumulating 102 points, conceding only 6 points, it was challenging for any other team to compete for the championship.

Therefore, in the final years of Ronaldo's career, it's best to appreciate his performances without expecting too many championships....
