“It’s not the end of my career to come to South Africa,” Ronaldo said on Tuesday. The speech comes after a multi-million deal between the player and the Saudi club.
If the amount has not been confirmed, several media report that it would be a contract of 200 million euros.
The 37-year-old Portuguese player didn’t seem to notice his gaffe, as he continued his statement confidently.
“Honestly, I don’t care too much about what people say. I made my choice […]. I am very happy to be here,” he continued.
Cristiano Ronaldo did not comment on his clumsiness.
