Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr storms China to prepare for Messi’s Inter Miami (VIDEO)




Ahead of the friendly against Inter Miami featuring Messi and Suarez, Ronaldo is leading his Al-Nassr teammates to China for their pre-season preparations.

The Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo, is spearheading the Al Nassr football squad’s trip to China in readiness for a friendly tournament scheduled for January.

Al Nassr’s first match is set for January 24 against Shanghai, followed by another fixture on January 28 against Zhejiang.

Upon their arrival at Shenzhen Airport, a throng of Chinese fans gathered, chanting Cristiano Ronaldo’s name, eagerly awaiting the team’s arrival.

The massive turnout of supporters underscores Ronaldo’s immense popularity in China, with fans keen to witness the global icon in action as he leads Al Nassr in these friendly matches.

In a previous video uploaded to Al Nassr’s official account, Ronaldo addressed his Chinese followers, saying:

“Are you ready? Al Nassr is coming.”

Ronaldo recently received two accolades at the Global Soccer Conference: the Maradona Award for Top Scorer of the Year 2023 and the title of Best Player in the Middle East.

The majority of Al Nassr’s professional players, including Otavio, Ronaldo, and Brozović, are currently in China as part of the team.

David Ospina, the Colombian goalkeeper, has returned from an injury and is back in action with the team.

Ronaldo has been warmly received in Asia before, notably in Iran, where he was greeted with great enthusiasm.

However, some players, such as Seko Fofana and Sadio Mané, are absent as they are representing their countries in the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Al Nassr’s trip to China coincides with Lionel Messi and Inter Miami’s preparations for their upcoming match.

After their China tour, Al Nassr is set to compete in the Riyadh Season Cup 2024 in Riyadh. They are scheduled to face Messi’s Inter Miami on February 1st and Al Hilal on February 8th.

Xavi fires back at Enrique for claiming PSG would’ve won without red card



Xavi fires back at Enrique for claiming PSG would've won without red card

“Luis Enrique said that even without the red card PSG would have won anyway and he hopes you will be the coach of Barca for many years, what do you say?” Xavi was asked.

The Barca boss replied in a fiery tone, “I say NO to both.”

Xavi’s disagreement with Enrique’s celebration of PSG’s victory may indicate his dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs at Barcelona, potentially hinting at a departure this summer.

Enrique’s exuberant reaction to PSG’s win, followed by comments boasting about his team’s superiority, contrasts with Xavi’s perspective and may suggest a difference in their visions for the club.

Despite PSG’s convincing win, it’s important to remember that Barcelona had a strong start in the match, leading by two goals at one point.

However, a pivotal moment came when Ronald Araujo’s decision to foul Bradley Barcola shifted the momentum in PSG’s favor, leading to their eventual victory.

PSG’s upcoming semi-final against Dortmund will be an intriguing matchup. During the group stage, Dortmund was unable to defeat PSG, indicating that the upcoming clash could be another challenging encounter for the German team.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.
