Al-Nassr legend, Mohammad Al-Sahlawi has named the club’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo the best attacker in the world of football and hopes the Portugal international makes the difference for Al-Aalami against Al-Hilal on Tuesday.
Al-Nassr, who recently sacked their manager Rudi Garcia, were held to a frustrating 0-0 stalemate by Al-Fayha in their last league game.
That particular result put them three points behind Al-Ittihad in the title race and Ronaldo and his teammates running out of time to leapfrog Al-Ittihad with just seven games to go.
They will now be hoping to return to winning ways when they face bitter rivals Al-Hilal at the King Fahd International Stadium.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will be today’s racehorse, with his expertise and high technical capabilities,” Al-Sahlawi was quoted as saying by the Saudi daily Al Eqtisadiah.
“He is the best attacker in the history of football, in addition to his physical and technical readiness. And he knows how to deal with such matches.”
