Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese football superstar, is reportedly at odds with Al-Nassr coach Rudi Garcia. Whom he feels is not maximizing the team’s potential. Al-Nassr currently sits three points behind league leaders Al-Ittihad in the Saudi Pro League. With the likes of Al-Shabab and Al-Hilal further down the pecking order.
The tension between Cristiano Ronaldo and Rudi Garcia seems to have boiled over behind the scenes. Reports suggest that the former is unhappy with the latter’s tactical approach. The Portuguese captain expressed his frustration after a goalless draw against mid-table Al-Fayha. This further added to the pressure on the coach.
Ronaldo is believed to feel that Al-Nassr has the potential to become champions but that Garcia is not getting the most out of the players. The team is set to face Al-Hilal in their next league outing. The pressure is on Garcia to deliver a positive result, given the mounting pressure from Ronaldo and the media.
According to sources in Saudi Arabia. Garcia’s position may now be under threat less than a year after being appointed, with some reports suggesting that his departure is imminent. However, other reports suggest that he may be given one more game at the helm.
Regardless of the outcome, it seems that the tension between Ronaldo and Garcia has put Al-Nassr’s season at risk, with the team’s chances of winning the league title looking increasingly slim. As such, the next few weeks will be critical for the club, with the pressure on the coach and players to perform at their best.
