‘One of my best’ – Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has surprisingly claimed that the 2023-24 campaign was “one of my best”, despite Al-Nassr ending the season without a trophy.

Ronaldo said when collecting his top scorer award: “It means a lot. I feel very happy. It’s probably one of the best seasons I’ve ever had in my career in terms of goals but assists too. To be honest it means a lot because it’s my work. I have to be honest and say it’s not something I was looking for at the beginning of the season but over time I started to see that it was possible. So, I have the opportunity to say thank you to my team-mates because without the team nothing individually would have been possible – but I feel very proud to beat the Saudi league record

It’s great for me, I feel happy, and this is my motivation to play football, to train every time and to carry on like that.”

Ronaldo has 64 goals in total through 69 games for Al-Nassr, but finished as a runner-up in the Pro League and King Cup of Champions in 2024. He ended the season in tears, but added on looking towards a bright future: “I think the goals for each season is the kind of the same, it’s to do your best and win titles. If possible, to collect individual [trophies] as well but my goal is to be the same – to be the same Cristiano that you saw this season, to do my best, to achieve goals with Al-Nassr and with my Portugal national team as well. To maintain my level is what I’m looking for.”
