The Al-Nassr executive who helped broker the deal to bring Cristiano to the Saudi club has resigned amid a poor season, according to a report.
According to a report from the Saudi Gazette, Al-Nassr club president Musalli Al-Muammar, who oversaw the signing of Ronaldo earlier in the season, has resigned with the club set for a disappointing end to the 2022-23 campaign.
Ronaldo headed to the Middle East in a mega money deal following the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup and a bombshell, tell-all interview where he criticised Manchester United heavily, prompting the club to release him by mutual consent. However, despite a few shows of brilliance, his frustrations have continued and tempers have flared with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner unable to help the club towards silverware.
The report claims that Al-Muammar has already submitted his resignation letter to the Ministry of Sports and the current board of directors at the club is to be dissolved. A new board and president could be decided before the end of the season.
