Ronaldo makes South Africa gaffe at Al Nassr unveiling

Football star Cristiano Ronaldo had a slip of the tongue at his official unveiling with Al Nassr on Tuesday after he mistook Saudi Arabia for South Africa.

He joined Al Nassr as a free agent on Friday after leaving Manchester United.

“The football is different, so for me it’s not the end of my career to come to South Africa. This is why I want to change, and to be honest I’m really not worried about what people say,” Ronaldo told the media as he was presented at the Riyadh club.

He added: “I won everything, I played for the most important clubs in Europe and now it is a new challenge in Asia.”
