Coach Al Nassr Did Not Give Special Treatment to Ronaldo
Al Nassr coach Rudi Garcia emphasized that his team needed to change their playing style after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, including always providing feedback to CR7.
Ronaldo made his debut with Al Nassr against Al Ittifaq in the Saudi Arabian League, Monday (23/1).
CR7 appeared as a starter on the front line of Al Nassr and served as captain. Ronaldo appeared aggressive and able to threaten the opponent’s defense, but he did not score on his debut with Al Nassr
Al Nassr’s only goal in the match was scored by Anderson Talisca in the 31st minute.After the match, Al Nassr coach Rudi Garcia assessed that his players had worked hard to involve Ronaldo in the game.
However, according to Rudi, the players don’t need to force it. For Rudi, the most important thing is that the players can maintain the balance of the game and only give the ball to Ronaldo when he is in an open position.
It’s very important for the players to play normally and not try too hard to give the ball to Cristiano,” Garcia said as quoted by the Daily Mail.
In addition, Garcia admitted that he would find the right way to position Ronaldo and Talisca so that Al Nassr’s front line would be sharper.
“I think sometimes we have a good position to cross but sometimes there’s no player in the box, sometimes there’s no Ronaldo and there’s no Talisca,” said Garcia.
“We need to work on it, to have one of them in the box and maybe the others will play outside the box,” said Garcia.
