Cristiano Ronaldo knows how to stir up dust. One way or another. Most often, of course, on the field, but he is also quite adept at it off the field. Not long ago, he raised a lot of eyebrows with a statement that there is very good football played in Saudi Arabia and that the league there is better than the French Ligue 1. Many from the football world reacted to his statement, including Albert Riera, former coach of Olimpija and Celje, who currently coaches Žan Vipotnik at the French second-division club Bordeaux.
“Ronaldo can say whatever he wants, right? I could also express my opinion on the Saudi league if I played there, but I only watched it on TV. Ronaldo never played in France. He could talk about England or Spain, but hardly about France. He can only watch it on TV, and I don’t even know how many matches he has actually watched. If he watched a game between Bordeaux and Nico, then he would surely change his mind,” replied Albert Riera to the Portuguese, who is a member of Al Ittihad.
