Cristiano Ronaldo was officially introduced as Al-Nassr’s new player on Tuesday. The Portuguese champion has signed an incredible contract of 500 million euros in two and a half years. During the presentation, CR7 stated that he was ready for this new challenge and that he wanted to win trophies and records. However, there was also room for a sensational blunder that immediately went viral on the Internet.
Promises and great faith at the same time: “It is a challenge for me, for the future, for the women and young people of this part of the world. I will try to change the mentality of future generations”, said CR7, adding that “in Europe my work is finished. I broke many records in Europe, now I want to do it here too. For me it is a normal thing. I didn’t come here to finish my career. I don’t care what people think.” Words that ignited the environment, before the sensational blunder.
Speaking about the “new football” in which he will compete, compared to the European one, Ronaldo made a mistake so big that it could not go unnoticed: “Football is different, the way football evolves is otherwise”, he explained convincingly. Then the gaffe: “Coming here to South Africa does not represent the end of my career for me. I wanted to change and I’m happy with the choice I made. People have shown that they love me and the reception has been spectacular”.
A minor distraction, that of confusing Saudi Arabia with South Africa, but geographically huge. And that obviously did not escape the ever-watchful eyes of the Internet, quickly becoming viral. A slip of the tongue that, however, did not spoil what was one of the most iconic moments in the Arab world.
