Neymar in Al-Hilal: Everyone called Ronaldo crazy, but he started all of this

The Saudis have decided to invest huge money in the development of the Saudi Football League. Their main goal is to attract the attention of football fans around the world and show that Saudi Arabia has the power to create a competition that can rival the European leagues.

The biggest sensation was the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Al-Nassr. After the Portuguese left Europe for Saudi Arabia, it started a domino effect. Many European players decided to change their environment this summer and come to the country where Ronaldo left.

One of the last to decide on such a move is the Brazilian, Neymar. The former PSG player signed for Al-Hilal a few days ago. In an interview with the media after the new engagement, the Brazilian emphasized that Cristiano Ronaldo had a great influence on the whole story.

“I believe Cristiano Ronaldo started all of this and everybody called him ‘crazy,’ and this and that. Today, you see the league grow more and more,” he said in an interview with Al-Hilal’s club media, as quoted by Eurosport.com

Neymar and his influence

Through his actions, he aimed to be able to influence the development of the Saudi League in a positive way.

The Brazilian star was ready for a new challenge in his career, and he realized that Saudi Arabia was the best choice for him at this point in his career. “I am driven by challenges. Obviously, when you face a challenge like this it boosts your self-esteem.

I am there to help the league grow more and more." This league has the potential to become one of the strongest if they continue with the same trend in the future. Many respectable players have already arrived in Saudi Arabia, and we have no doubt that others are likely to follow in the same footsteps.

"They are already changing a lot; they have made a lot of signings. Yes, surely the league will be very competitive especially after the signings made in this summer transfer window”.
