A ‘2023 so far’ compilation of Cristiano Ronaldo has surfaced on social media, and fans are astounded by the Al Nassr star.
Ronaldo has consistently been one of the best players in world football for the majority of the past 20 years. He burst onto the scene with Sporting Lisbon before securing a move to Manchester United in 2003.
After conquering the Premier League, the Portuguese icon’s career included stints at Real Madrid, Juventus, a return to Manchester United, and now Al Nassr in the Saudi Pro League.
Although many questioned Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabia in January, given the relative strength of the league compared to European football, the move has somewhat been vindicated due to the influx of top stars this summer.
At 38 years of age, Ronaldo is still banging the goals in, with an incredible six goals and four assists in his first four Saudi Pro League appearances of the season.
And while the likes of Neymar and Karim Benzema have joined the league, Ronaldo is still very much the star of the show.
A compilation of his 2023 highlights has now gone viral.

The six-minute compilation highlights Ronaldo sprinting past opponents and leaving defenders on the ground as he demonstrates his wide range of skills.
In one clip, he receives the ball with his back to the goal, swiftly turns, finds a teammate, and charges into the penalty area.
The compilation also features a diverse selection of goals and some remarkable long passes that create scoring opportunities for his Al Nassr teammates.
This isn’t Ronaldo from 2008 or even 2015; it’s the Ronaldo of 2023. Fans are truly astounded by his performance.
