Ronaldo to face Messi in first Al-Nassr match

Al Nassr coach, Rudi Garcia, has said Cristiano Ronaldo could make his first appearance for the club in a friendly match against Paris Saint-Germain.

Ronaldo sat out the first of two domestic games for the Saudi Arabian club on Friday after being suspended by the English FA for hitting a young fan’s phone following Manchester United’s defeat at Everton in April.

Garcia has confirmed the 37-year-old would also miss the league fixture against Al Shabab and make his debut against Ettifaq on January 22 unless he plays against Lionel Messi’s PSG in a team made up of players from Al Nassr and Al Hilal in Riyadh on January 19.

“It [his debut] won’t be with the Al Nassr jersey. It will be a mix between Al Hilal and Al Nassr.

“For development, to see PSG, to see the great Parisian players, indeed it is a good thing. But we have a championship game three days later,” Garcia told French newspaper L’Equipe.
