- Has hailed the ex-Man Utd star
WHAT HAPPENED? Ronaldo has been hailed as one of the best players in the world by Castro, who has come into Al-Nassr from Botafogo after the club failed to win the Saudi Pro League title last season. The 38-year-old has scored 14 goals in 19 games for the club since joining from Manchester United.
WHAT THEY SAID: Castro told reporters of linking up with Ronaldo: "It's always good to coach the best in the world. He's on that team, as a man who will go down in football history. So it will be a pleasure to work with him, as with everyone else who follows him."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ronaldo is currently on holiday but is set to return to Al-Nassr this week before a friendly in Portugal, against Farense, at the Estadio Algarve. All-Nassr have made moves to strengthen their squad this summer and have signed Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan.
