Famous Portuguese player Jorge Mendes’ agent has finally broken his silence on his parting ways with his star client Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of Saudi club Al Nasr, after a long successful partnership between the two.
Mendes was awarded the National Sports Press Club of Portugal and made important statements to reporters about his relationship with Ronaldo, stressing that he had a great personal relationship with him.
“Cristiano is in the right place now, this is life, he is in Saudi Arabia and we should all be very grateful to him for everything he has done for football and Portugal, he is the greatest ambassador of Portugal,” Mendes said. This is stated in a statement published by the Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
Mendes did not hesitate to praise the “Don”: “Ronaldo will always be in my heart, he is a player and a special person for me, and all the Portuguese should be proud of a player like him.”
Mendes concluded his speech by saying “I will say this all my life, he was and will be the best player in the history of football.”
Ronaldo cut ties with Mendez after his contract with Manchester United was terminated in November 2022 and replaced his representative with another trusted man, Ricardo Regoff, who oversaw Don’s transfer to Al Nasr Saudi Arabia at the start this year. .
