DAMMAM: Electrified Al Nassr fans chanted Cristiano Ronaldo’s name and performed his signature celebration style, dubbed as ‘Siiiu’, in the stands as they eagerly await the Portuguese star’s arrival in Saudi Arabia. 

Star footballer signed a historic $75 million a year deal with Saudi club Al Nassr on Friday with a contract of two years, following his bitter exit from Manchester United.

While the sales of Ronaldo’s new jersey skyrocketed just hours after the deal was signed, the club fans are very excited to watch their new hero in action.

In a viral video doing rounds on Twitter, Al Nassr fans can be seen chanting ‘Ronaldo, Ronaldo’ and shouting Siiiu, his famous style of goal celebration, during the Saudi Pro League match on Saturday.

Ronaldo, 37, left Premier League giants Manchester United last month following an explosive television interview in which the forward said he felt betrayed by the club and did not respect their Dutch manager Erik ten Hag.

He represented Portugal in Qatar, where he became the first player to score in five World Cups after netting a penalty in his side’s opening Group H game against Ghana. Portugal were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Morocco.

Ronaldo said Qatar would probably be his last World Cup as he plans to retire at 40, with a move to Saudi Arabia likely to mark the swansong in the career of one of the game’s greatest current players alongside Lionel Messi.
