WITHRishtiano Ronaldo sounded like a pioneer when he talked about his first season in a recent PR interview for the Saudi Football League. “If they come, big players and big names, young players, old players, they are very welcome,” he said. It makes the league better.
Big names abound now. French striker Karim Benzema, Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid teammate, has signed, proudly announces his new club. The 35-year-old has signed a three-year deal with champion Al Ittihad from the coastal city of Jeddah. Saudi Arabian state television previously reported that the Frenchman should earn about $300 million in two years.
