Asked about the 37-year-old’s Saudi debut, Al-Nassr boss Rudi Garcia confirmed: “(It) won’t be with the Al-Nassr jersey.

“It will be a mix between Al-Hilal and Al-Nassr…”

Ronaldo has been serving a two-match ban since joining Al-Nassr, given to him for slapping a phone out of a 14-year-old’s hands last April.

He could only watch on from the stands as his new side beat Al-Ta’ee 2-0.
