Cristiano Ronaldo breaks another record after brace for Al Nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo breaks another record after brace for Al Nassr

Cristiano Ronaldo has broken a huge record in his first full season in the Saudi Pro League.

Cristiano Ronaldo has added another incredible record to his collection and one that may never be beaten.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner made the move to Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League in December 2022, with the transfer leading to a whole host of high-profile players joining him in the Middle East.

Ronaldo, said to be the highest-paid player in world football, hit 14 goals in 16 league games after leaving Manchester United via mutual consent.

But in his first full season in the SPL, he's proven that age is just a number and continues to bang in the goals aged 39.

Ronaldo's brace in a 4-2 win over Al Ittihad in the final game of the season takes him to an impressive tally of 35 goals in 31 league appearances.

He's also contributed further with 11 assists but the double means he has set a new record for the most amount of goals in a single Saudi Pro League season.

The previous record was held by Moroccan striker Abderrazak Hamdallah when he was plying his trade with Al Nassr.

He hit 34 goals in 26 games in the 2018/19 campaign.

Al Nassr, with Sadio Mane, Aymeric Laporte and Alex Telles also in their ranks, have finished second in the league.

Ronaldo has netted 50 goals in all competitions and could yet see his overall goalscoring stats improve as Al Nassr take on champions Al Hilal in the Kings Cup final on Friday.

He has now finished as the top scorer in all four leading leagues he played in, showing his prowess in the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and the Saudi Pro League.

His contract with Al Nassr expires in June 2025 but there are suggestions that he could extend his stay.

Once the season finishes, the Real Madrid legend will lead Portugal into Euro 2024 in what could be his final international tournament.
