In the 2-minute video, Ronaldo, Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic, Alex Telles, Talisca, and Otavio appeared performing traditional dances in traditional attire with swords prepared to mark the Saudi holiday by the club.
In another image surfacing on social media, Cristiano was spotted staring directly at the camera with a cold look. Reportedly, his way of looking was inspired by Prince Muhammad bin Abdul Rahman Al Saud who played a significant role in the conquests that led to the formation of the kingdom.

Muhammad’s role in the unification of Saudi Arabia was significant. He was a skilled military leader and a loyal supporter of his brother. His contributions helped pave the way for the establishment of the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Pro League has proved to be an impetus for the country;
Ronaldo’s transfer to the Al-Nassr team was monumental in the development of the Saudi Pro League. Economically, it has been helping the country, as the viewership of the league has increased exponentially with the arrival of Ronaldo. The league has become more competitive, as several other big names like Karim Benzema, Neymar Jr., and Sadio Mane have traveled to the Middle East only after Ronaldo’s bold decision.
Despite the great distances and differences in cultures between Saudi Arabia , Portugal , Brazil and Senegal , all these differences disappear when we believe in the high human values that spread love and peace among the peoples of the earth .

However, off the pitch, Ronaldo has helped to promote the Saudi Pro League on social media. He has over 600 million followers on Instagram. It helped to attract new fans to the league and increase its popularity.
Ronaldo is seen as an ambassador to promote Saudi culture and values around the world by the Saudi Arabian government. It’s just a matter of time before everyone agrees that Ronaldo is the torchbearer of a new era in Saudi Arabian Soccer.
