Al-Nassr midfielder, Luiz Gustavo has admitted that teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo makes matches more difficult for Rudi Garcia’s side because opponents seek to participate against him in the best possible way.
Gustavo said this after Al-Nassr’s 2-2 draw against Al-Fateh in a Saudi Pro League tie on Friday night.
Recall that Ronaldo finally scored his first competitive goal for Al-Nassr against Al-Fateh.
The Portugal captain had joined the Saudi outfit as a free agent after his contract with Man United was terminated by mutual consent last year.
“Certainly, the presence of Ronaldo makes matches more difficult for us as all teams seek to participate against him in the best possible way, and he gives motivation to everyone,” Gustavo said [via RT Arabic].
He added, “His presence at Al-Nassr gives a great advantage to the group because we learn from him every day, given the great capabilities he possesses, both technically and physically.”
