Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister, Katia Aveiro has backed her brother for snubbing European clubs to complete a mega-money move to Saudi Arabian club, Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo, who was particularly keen to join a UEFA Champions League club after his contract at Manchester United was terminated in November, signed a huge deal with Al Nassr that will see him remain at the club until 2025.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner signed a contract with Al-Nassr on Friday night that will see him earn $175million per year.
Reacting, Aveiro, in a post via her Instagram story, backed Ronaldo to ‘make history once more’ after he joined Al-Nassr.
Sharing a post of her brother holding up Al-Nassr’s yellow and blue shirt, Aveiro wrote: “Pride of my life… to make history once more.”
Ronaldo will hope to lead Al-Nassr to win the Saudi Arabia league this season as they currently sit in the second position with two points behind leaders Al-Shabab after ten games.
