Taking to Instagram after securing the prestigious awards, the Portuguese star, known for his prolific goal-scoring ability, shared some captivating photos from the awards ceremony.
In his Instagram post, Ronaldo conveyed his gratitude and pride, saying, “Proud to have won three awards today. A big thank you to all the staff, teammates, and fans who keep making me better every day!”
The post quickly garnered attention from fans and fellow players alike, with many congratulating the football icon on his remarkable achievements.
Ronaldo’s stellar performance at Al-Nassr has been nothing short of extraordinary since joining the club in January the previous year. Scoring an impressive 54 goals in 59 games, the seasoned striker outperformed other notable players like Kylian Mbappe, Harry Kane, and Erling Haaland in their respective leagues.
During the awards ceremony, Ronaldo, with a triumphant smile, confidently declared himself as ‘the best goalscorer’ of the season. He expressed pride in surpassing younger competitors like Haaland and addressed the criticism he often faces. “Imagine beating young animals like Haaland… I’m proud. And I’ll be 39 soon! I like when people doubt me again and then I’m successful. I don’t get affected by the criticism,” he remarked.
The football icon also took the opportunity to share his perspective on the Saudi Pro League, comparing it favorably to France’s Ligue 1.
“To be honest, I think the Saudi league is not worse than the French league, in my opinion. In Saudi, I think it is more competitive. They can say whatever they want; it is just an opinion. I have played here for one year so I know what I am talking about. But, I think right now we are better than the French league,” Ronaldo stated.
