The thirty seven(37) years old Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Saudi Arabia at the beginning of this week and he was fit and ready to make his debut for his new club against Al Tai. He is still carrying a two match ban from his previous club Manchester United.
CR7 was suspended for smashing a phone out of the hands from a teenager after a match against Everton and his ban, although handed out by the English Football Association, must also be served in Saudi Arabia, according to Federation of Football Association(FIFA) law.
“Any disciplinary sanction of up to four matches or up to three months that has been imposed on a player by the previous association but not yet served at the time of transfer shall be enforced by the new association with which the player is registered in order for the sanction to be enforced at national level,” Marca cite FIFA.
