Marcel Tisserand, a defender for the Saudi Arabian team Al-Ettifaq, has written to Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates.
Despite claims that the forward is past his prime, he claimed that the 37-year-old is sharp and adjusting to life at the Arab club quickly.
The defender stressed that Ronaldo's teammates must be prepared to pass the ball to him as he maneuvers quickly into the box of the opposition.
The legendary player made his Al-Nassr debut last weekend and played the entire 90 minutes as his team defeated Ettifaq 1-0.
Tisserand, a French-Congolese defender who faced off against legendary goalscorer Ronaldo, has now spoken openly about the encounter.
“You can see that he takes good care of himself." "It is certain that he no longer has his 20-year-old legs,” he told Foot Mercato.
“We see that now he needs his teammates a little more." He plays a lot more with his head and pays more attention to his movements and his sense of timing. He evolves with the times. "I think he will adapt quite quickly to this championship.”
