Al-Nassr have rubbished claims that the club’s president, Musalli Al-Muammar said he felt “cheated” by Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Saudi Arabia.
The Portugal captain has been unable to inspire a Pro League title charge while also suffering demoralising defeats in cup competition.
Quotes attributed to Al-Muammar have been making the rounds on social media, but Al-Nassr insists the quotes in question are entirely fictional.
The club’s press adviser, Walid Al-Muhaidib, has told the EFE news agency: “The talk in the Spanish press that we cheated on the Ronaldo deal, based on the Arabia News 50 website, is false and incorrect. The press came up with his joke and thought it was true.”
