As much as football is a field game, it is more of a passion of the mind. That emotion sometimes stops wars, and sometimes silences the world. Laughter-cry, friend-enemy creates a gap in everything, the football game comes alive. This time, to set an example of friendship, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo made a unique request.
On December 30 last year, Ronaldo signed for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nasr. This time, CRSeven wants to take Portuguese defender Pepe to the club. Pepe is known as a very close friend of Ronaldo. They have previous experience playing together at Real Madrid outside the national team.
Spanish media Marca said that Ronaldo went to Saudi Arabia and spoke with Al-Nasr. He wants to see his friend Pepe at the club. It is believed that star Ronaldo said this because he wants to keep Pepe by his side on and off the field.
Marca gave an example of the Pepe-Ronaldo friendship. The Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was kept in the dugout during the match against Switzerland in the second round of the World Cup in Qatar. Pepe was the captain in that match. However, after Ronaldo entered the field as a substitute, Pepe took off his arm band and put it on his friend. The football world was fascinated by that scene
Besides, friend Pepe was seen by Ronaldo’s side during various crises. Girlfriend Georgina gave courage to Ronaldo, who was broken after his departure from the 22nd season of football. Pepe was by his side at that time. Maybe Al-Nasr wants to take Pepe to show his gratitude to such a friend.
Meanwhile, various reports are saying: Al-Nasr is thinking about not only Pepe, but also Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric. If given the opportunity, the club can bring them to the team.
