Al-Nassr announce arrival of Portuguese manager for Ronaldo
Al-Nassr has announced the appointment of Cristiano Ronaldo’s compatriot, Luis Castro as their new manager.
The 61-year-old former Botafogo manager replaced Rudi Garcia, who was sacked midway through the 2022-23 season.
Under-19 coach, Dinko Jelicic saw off the rest of the campaign in which they ended trophyless.
Al-Nassr ended the season in second place in the Saudi Pro League and was knocked out of the two domestic cup competitions.
While Cristiano Ronaldo was among the goal scorers, netting 14 and setting up three in his first 19 games for the club, Al-Alamy couldn’t lift a silverware.
Fans will hope that Castro’s arrival can bring a change in fortune as he works with the team and his compatriot.
