Cristiano Ronaldo to lead Saudi Pro League All-Stars against Man City in friendly
Cristiano Ronaldo will captain the Saudi Pro League All Stars, which will include Sadio Mane and Neymar, in a friendly against Manchester City in November.
Saudi Pro League talents will link up in a friendly against English powerhouse Manchester City. The Saudi All-Stars team will be headed by Cristiano Ronaldo and will feature Sadio Mane and Neymar.
Saudi Arabia is doing everything they can to promote the upcoming Riyad Festival, including a number of significant attractions. The intriguing friendly is part of the complex strategy for the Saudi Pro League. It was learned that the planners are concentrating on athletic activities, since they have already signed contracts with Gipsy King Tyson Fury for the major event.
They are now attempting to secure a friendly match between Manchester City and the Saudi Pro League All-Stars. It is indicated that the City Group leadership may be interested in the notion from a public relations standpoint.
However, due to Manchester City’s hectic schedule, there has been no formal confirmation from either party. The defending European champions are competing in three major tournaments. As a result, obtaining the side in November will be difficult.
Meanwhile, Al Nassr captain Cristiano Ronaldo may be doing double duty during the festival, as a museum in his honour is due to open. The Portuguese is likely to be there for the unveiling and may perhaps participate in the friendly.
Tyson Fury will headline the main event, taking on Francis Ngannou in a bout to claim the ‘baddest man’ on the earth.
