    He plays for himself

    He only wanted to play for himself. If it's the Asian Champions League or if it is at the Special Olympics, it never mattered, as long as he can play for himself and get all the glory. -Mr Man

  2. At least he won’t run much

    At least he won’t run much

    Good for him, he will go to a league where he won't have to run much. The EPL was always going to be a step too much for him. Even the young players feel the physical effect of the rhythm in the EPL, not to now talk of a 37-year-old. Even Messi will struggle in the EPL. -Gbenupo Cadmus

    That’s where he belongs

    That's where he belongs considering his age. people disagree with me. No any big club will sign him in Europe. -Muna

    Thought he wanted to play Champions League football. -Babatunde Tosin

  6. Bad move for Al-Nassr

    Bad move for Al-Nassr

    Bad move for the Saudi club. No doubt Ronaldo is a good player but it's important to note that he's below average. Ronaldo needs to be around excellent players to succeed, something that clearly won't happen in Saudi. He won't have the likes of Marcelo or [Mesut] Ozil to feed balls to him. -Richard Cyril

  7. There for the money

    There for the money

    Yes, his stock plummets with each subpar performance and with each childish tantrum. Best to cash in while he still can. -Emiliano Zapata

  8. Too much money

    Too much money

    No human deserves that much money or to quote Winston Churchill; “Money is like manure, it's only good if you spread it around.” -Mr Man

  9. This is what was available to him

    This is what was available to him

    When the desirable is not available, the available becomes the desirable. Wishing him all the best.-richardakaraka6@gmail.com

  10. He still has two more years at the top

    He still has two more years at the top

    As an unapologetic Ronaldo fan, I am not sure if I should celebrate or agonise. I love seeing Ronaldo making big money but I hope to be able to keep watching his brilliance at a top level for at least two more seasons. -Mansur Kurugu
