This Twitter User Perfectly Sums Up The Effect That Ronaldo Had On The Saudi League
The move of Cristiano Ronaldo to Saudi Arabia has proven to be catalytic for the football scene in the country. His presence at the Saudi Pro League has caused a massive influx of attention to the league, which is now being broadcast in several countries around the world.
Frank Khalid, a Twitter user and self-proclaimed Chelsea fan, posted a tweet that perfectly captures the Portuguese great’s impact on the Saudi league.
Khalid actually quoted a match commentator on his observations, and you just can’t deny ’em.

The buzz surrounding the Saudi Pro League is only going to get bigger as some big names are being circulated in the transfer market.
Luca Modric and even Lionel Messi have been touted to be the next in line to make a move, especially after his agent-dad was spotted in Riyadh recently. Fingers crossed!
