Al Nassr boss: 'Ronaldo will return to Europe'

Cristiano Ronaldo will return to play again in Europe after his spell in Saudi Arabia, according to his head coach at Al Nassr. 

The Portugal captain terminated his contract with Manchester United earlier this season before making a big-money move to the Saudi Pro League on a two-year deal. However, Rudi Garcia has suggested the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will play on beyond the end of his current contract, when he will be 40 years old.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is a positive addition, as he helps to disperse defenders," Rudi Garcia said. "He is one of the best players in the world. He will not finish his career at Al Nassr, he will return to Europe."

Ronaldo is yet to score for his new club, failing to hit the net on his league debut against Al Ettifaq or in Al Nassr's Saudi Super Cup exit to Al Ittihad.
