Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr debut date revealed by club source, check here | Football News

Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo can make his debut for Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on January 22, a club source told AFP on Saturday (January 7). Al Nassr broke the bank to sign the services of the all-time leading goalscorer in the history of football recently.

Earlier, it was being speculated that the wait for Cristiano Ronaldo to play his first match for his new club Al Nassr got extended after the Saudi Arabian club’s league match against Al Tae’e was postponed due to an electrical issue brought on by heavy rain at Mrsool Park.

Al Nassr is hoping to reschedule the game for Friday, but if they are unable, the Portuguese will miss the possibility of serving the first match of his two-match suspension. Ronaldo is scheduled to make his Saudi Pro League debut after serving a two-match suspension imposed by the English Football Association in November for knocking a phone out of an Everton fan’s hand during a match against Manchester United at Goodison Park last season.

“Due to heavy rain and weather conditions impacting the stadium`s electricity, we have been officially informed that tonight`s match against Al Tae`e is postponed for 24 hours. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to fans and wish everyone safe travels,” said Al Nassr as quoted by ESPN. 

Ronaldo signed a 2.5-year contract worth USD 75 million a year with Al Nassr on December 30. According to FIFA regulations, in the case that a player is transferred to another nation before serving the entirety of a suspension, the suspension must still be served by the player. Following the termination of Ronaldo’s Manchester United contract during the World Cup, the suspension was made official. If the former Madrid star is unable to play against Al Tae’e or in the January 14 fixture against Al Shabab, Ronaldo’s first opportunity to play for Al Nassr will be against Al-Ettifaq at Mrsool Park on January 22. 

However, Ronaldo’s suspension would extend to the matches against Al Shabab and Al-Ettifaq if the match against Al Tae`e cannot be rescheduled this month, delaying his debut until the Saudi Super Cup semifinal match against Al Ittihad in Jeddah on January 25. (With ANI inputs)
