Brazilian superstar Neymar admits ‘we called Cristiano Ronaldo crazy’ for Saudi Pro League move



Neymar, who recently joined Al Hilal, has acknowledged that everyone thought Cristiano Ronaldo was crazy for becoming the league’s first mega-star acquisition.

After failing to secure a return to Barcelona, the Brazilian legend joined in a £69 million deal from Paris Saint-Germain, becoming the league’s most expensive player ever.

Neymar, who is still in his prime at age 31, is the most significant acquisition of the summer, forgoing regular Champions League knockout football and Ballon d’Or consideration in exchange for Middle Eastern wealth.

However, Neymar asserts that none of that would have been possible without Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, the all-time leading scorer in football and a five-time champion of the Champions League, signed as a free agent for Al Nassr in December after his deal with Manchester United was terminated.

In the future, he predicted that the Saudi Pro League might rank among the top five leagues in the world, and after a summer of massive spending, he claimed to have “opened a box.”.

Neymar, who is currently a member of Al Hilal, has concluded the same thing as his former El Clasico rival.

I think Cristiano Ronaldo started it all, he said, adding that he was dubbed crazy and other things. The league is expanding steadily today.

“I’m here to help the league develop further; it’s already undergoing significant change, and after the signings made during this summer’s transfer window, the league will undoubtedly be very competitive.

“I think competition is important, which is why I’m joining this league. It’s obviously a big change, but it will be a new challenge. “.

Neymar is as thrilled as the fans about the abundance of new idols available in Saudi Arabia this summer, where teams have spent more than £500 million.

When asked which team he was most looking forward to playing, the Brazilian said: “It is exciting meeting top quality players on the other teams, it thrills you and motivates you to play even better.

“I am excited to join this league because it is a given that the excitement increases when you play against Ronaldo, [Karim] Benzema, and [Roberto] Firmino. It will be fantastic to face them. It will be wonderful. “.
