What Gerrard said
Speaking in his capacity as the manager of AL-Ettifaq, the former England international praised the Al-Nassr star for his impact in the Saudi Professional League.
“Obviously huge signing still had a lot of football to offer. From afar, for six months, I was looking in at Cristiano Ronaldo's results, watching some games, watching some highlights.
“I think from that moment, the league around the world became a very popular talking point for everyone.”
