In Saudi Arabia, living together before marriage is prohibited by law. It is regarded as a crime and is regarded as obscenity. But Cristiano Ronaldo, 38, appears to be above the law.
The British media ‘The Sun’ cited Spain’s ‘Sport’ on the 6th (Korean time) and said, “Because Ronaldo is the most marketable athlete in the world, he will be able to live with his partner Georgia Rodriguez.”
“Saudi law still prohibits cohabitation before marriage. But (in Ronaldo’s case) the authorities will turn a blind eye. We will not persecute anyone,” he explained. “The law is triggered when there is a problem or when a crime occurs.”
In addition, the fact that Ronaldo and Georgia are foreigners is the reason why the Saudi authorities did not make it a big problem, he added.
On the 31st of last month, Ronaldo signed an official contract with Saudi Arabia’s team Al Nasr. Details of the contract are not known, but it is known that Al-Nasr pays Ronaldo 200 million euros (276 billion won) annually, including annual salary, for two and a half years.
In addition, it is known that when Ronaldo’s active contract with Al-Nasr expires, he plans to go beyond the club and remain as a public relations ambassador for Saudi Arabia aiming to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup. In this case, Ronaldo can earn a total of 1.3 billion pounds (about 2 trillion won).토토사이트
Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s debut is expected to be delayed somewhat.
According to the ‘AFP News’ on the day, the Saudi Arabia professional football league allows only up to eight foreign players to register per team. This means that in order for Al Nasr to register Ronaldo, he would have to transfer one of the foreign players or terminate his contract.
According to the predictions of many foreign media, Jarolidin Masaripov (29), a former Uzbekistan national team player, is expected to leave the team.
In addition, Ronaldo was fined 50,000 pounds (approximately 76.5 million won) by the English Football Association (FA) in November last year for the fact that he assaulted a young child while playing in the Premier League last year.
This punishment caught my ankle. According to Article 12, Paragraph 1 of the FIFA’s player status and transfer regulations, a penalty of up to 4 games or 3 months not completely played at the time of transfer does not disappear even if the league is changed.
Therefore, even if Ronaldo’s player registration is completed as soon as possible, he will not be able to play against Al Tai on the 6th and against Al Shabab on the 15th.
