Cristiano Ronaldo took to Instagram following Al-loss Nassr’s to Saudi Pro League title rivals Al-Ittihad to post a series of workout photos captioned with a cryptic message..
The former Manchester United player led his new club to their second defeat in Jeddah since moving to Saudi Arabia. Former Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s side jumped ahead of their Riyadh rivals with a goal from Romarinho.
In January, Al-Ittihad eliminated Al-Nassr from the Saudi Super Cup. With ten games remaining, one point separates the two teams atop the table two-thirds of the way through the season, and Ronaldo has now emphasized the importance of focusing on what matters for the run-in..
“Focus on the outcome, not the obstacles,” Ronaldo said on social media, alongside photos of him doing a series of weight workouts while wearing Al-Nassr branded training gear. It’s not the first time he’s called for concentration in the aftermath of a defeat.
Ronaldo made his feelings known in the aftermath. “We are disappointed with the outcome, but we remain focused on our season and the games ahead,” he wrote. “We appreciate your support, Al Nassr fans; we know we can count on you!”
Al-next Nassr’s game is scheduled for Tuesday, when they will resume their King Cup campaign against Abha..
If they make it to the final four and then defeat the winners of Al-Hilal versus Al-Fateh, they could meet Al-Ittihad for the fourth time this season in the competition’s final..
