The footballer is dissatisfied with the level of the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
Forward for Al Nassr, Cristiano Ronaldo criticized the standard of the Portuguese Primeira Liga.
«There are conflicting moments in every league, but in Portugal, there are many. This isn't good. And people who have even a slight understanding realize this. However, everyone pulls their own strings.
It's a challenging phase, but I hope things change. Recently, I opened a newspaper to see what's happening in general. The first three articles were not about football. It makes you think that the main focus now is on bad news.
I'm Portuguese, and it worries me. I want our league to be one of the best, but it won't become one. That's one of the problems.
Everyone expresses their opinion and argues, and there are 40 channels with debates and discussions. It could be better, exceptionally. That's why, shortly, Portugal won't be among the top leagues - like the Premier League, La Liga, or the Bundesliga.
I thought it could reach the top 4 or 5, but now it won't. The Saudi Arabian league is better than the Portuguese league. There are not only scandals there, and there isn't as much noise, but the level of names is much higher.
I hope it gets better, but I know it's tough. It's impossible. What's been happening lately turns the league into a circus,» the footballer is quoted by Record.
