“I thought Messi was better than Ronaldo, but after training with him I knew I wasn’t wrong,” – Vincent Aboubakar
A Saudi League rule says that a team can only sign up a maximum of 8 foreign players. This means that the striker will be leaving the club soon.
Al Nassr let striker Vincent Aboubakar’s contract expire after they signed Cristiano Ronaldo. This may have given the Cameroonian player the last laugh in the trade.
NTV Spor says that Aboubakar said, “I’ve always thought Messi was better than Ronaldo, but when I practised with him, I realised I was right.” Mundo Deportivo talked about these stories.
Since 2021, when he joined the Saudi club, the player, who is now 30 years old, has played in 34 games for them and scored 12 goals.
A Saudi League rule says that a team can only sign up a maximum of 8 foreign players. This means that the striker will be leaving the club soon. The source says that the club knew about this because if they had signed Ronaldo, one of their current international players would have had to leave. Ronaldo is seen as the best player on Portugal’s national team.
A Daily Mail article about rumours from France said that Aboubakar and the club have a deal that says he will be compensated if they both decide to end his contract.
But Ronaldo won’t be able to play for Al Nassr for the first time until January 22. This is because Ronaldo is currently serving a ban for the time he accidentally knocked a fan’s phone out of their hand at Goodison Park in November.

After missing the team’s 2-0 win over Al-Taee on Friday, Ronaldo’s first of two games he can’t play because of his suspension started. On January 14, Ronaldo won’t be able to help the team play against Al Shabab. He will play again on January 22. In the 14th round of the Saudi Arabian League, he will play against Al Ettifaq.
A report from the Saudi tabloid OKAZ says that Manchester United is sending Aboubakar on a short-term loan to Old Trafford.
