Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo described his season in the Saudi Football League, which he boosted by a record 35 goals to become the historic scorer during one season throughout the league’s history; as “one of the best seasons of his career ever.”

The al-nasr captain won the league’s top scorer award for the 2023-2024 season, after his incredible achievement by scoring 35 goals in just 31 games, breaking the previous record set by the Moroccan Abd al-Razak Hamdallah, who scored 34 goals in the 2018-2019 season.

Ronaldo was not only the 5-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, a record scorer during one season, but also made 11 assists, becoming the highest scoring contributor in a season, with a total of 46 scoring contributions.

“It means a lot. I’m thrilled. It’s probably one of the best seasons I’ve had in my career in terms of goals, but it’s also a great season in assists. “

He added: “I have to admit it wasn’t something I was looking for at the beginning of the season, but over time I started to see it possible. So, I have a chance to say thank you to my teammates because without the team nothing could be achieved individually. “

The al-nasr captain was proud to be able to break the goal record in one season and said: “I feel proud to break the Saudi League record, and that’s great for me, and it makes me happy, and that’s my real motivation to play football, to practice every time and to continue like this.”

Since joining al-nasr in late December 2022, Ronaldo has scored 49 goals in 47 Saudi League matches, out of a total of 64 goals in 69 matches in all competitions. Ronaldo won the world’s top scorer in 2023, with 54 goals in 59 games.

Ronaldo’s eyes are on Portugal and the 2024 European Cup, where he faces the Czech Republic, Turkey and Georgia in the group stage of the finals hosted by Germany.

Ronaldo said: “I think my goals every season are the same, which is to do your best and win trophies with your team. If possible, collect individual awards as well; But my goal is to remain the same person, to be the same Cristiano that you saw this season, to do my best, to achieve the goals with victory and with Portugal as well. Maintaining my level is what I seek “.
