Al Nassr was dubbed the “Global” club even before Ronaldo

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo’s new team Al Nassr is nicknamed Al Alami which means “The Global Club.” However, the Saudi Arabian club was hardly prepared to handle the sudden attention of the world that came its way following one of the most sensational signings in soccer history. Al Nassr still doesn’t have an English language website. That was a problem for many fans when trying to learn the details of Ronaldo’s contract after the deal was first announced last Friday. Al Nassr’s social media accounts have become more user friendly for a western audience, however.
