Despite Ditching Saudi’s $126M Deal, Jose Mourinho’s Impact Will Equal Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr Move, Says Saudi League Executive

Cristiano Ronaldo and his Al-Nassr move have revamped the Saudi League. But there seems to be a new ‘rival’ that can outshine this $500-million-dollar move. In contrast, many have claimed that the Portuguese star has moved to Al-Nassr only for the financial perks.

Recently, a top Saudi League executive, Carlo Nohra, teased some inside take on the AS Roma manager’s move to the Gulf kingdom. In an interview with an Italian newspaper, the Saudi League Operations Director made some bold declarations.

To sum it up, he implied that sooner or later, Jose Mourinho will have to give up on his qualms and take the offer from the league. He divulged, “Speaking for myself, I’m waiting for him[Mourinho] to arrive… [His arrival]will rival that of Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of impact.”

Nohra not only voiced his eagerness for Mourinho’s arrival – but also claimed that it would be comparable to Cristiano Ronaldo’s transformative influence in the Saudi League. This is a bold assertion, considering the massive impact Ronaldo had when he joined Al-Nassr. What’s more – he also made an intriguing comment on the “so-called Ronaldo effect.”

How Mourinho may be as “equally” impactful as Cristiano Ronaldo for the Saudi League

As Carlo Nohra rightly pointed out, there may not be many Cristiano Ronaldos in the world of soccer, but the Saudis remain committed to finding another ‘bomb,’ another star who can take the league to new heights.

Nohra states, “There is no doubt that the so-called ‘Ronaldo effect’ was incredible for us and it may not happen again because there are not many Cristiano Ronaldos around. Everything changed in terms of visibility, relevance, television contracts. It is important that we continue to increase the level of the league and we are trying to sign another ‘bomb’.”

In Mourinho, he expects the potential for an equally significant impact: “I believe Mourinho will have an equally big impact. I can’t say if it will be our next big acquisition, but obviously, his arrival would represent another huge leap in quality in numerous aspects.”
