Al Nassr new star signing Cristiano Ronaldo could face World Cup winner Lionel Messi in a friendly match between Paris Saint-Germain and the Saudi club on January 19 in Riyadh.
Al Nassr coach Rudi Garcia made the disclosure that Ronaldo’s debut in Saudi Arabia would be as part of an exhibition side in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain, which could pit him against Messi.
The Portuguese star had been serving a two-match suspension by English FA for knocking a phone out of a fan’s hand following Manchester United’s defeat at Everton in April of 2022.
It has delayed Ronaldo’s much-anticipated debut, which is now expected to come in a showcase match with PSG in Riyadh on January 19.
Although, Garcia expressed sadness over the friendlies, which will be a mixture of Al Nassr and Al Hilal players, due to domestic matches, saying they had another home match to play three days after the set friendlies.
