Al-Nassr, the Saudi Arabian Pro League outfit, has announced the appointment of Luis Castro as their new head coach, replacing Rudi Garcia who was sacked back in April.

The arrival of Castro signals a change required in the dugout for the team.

Parting Ways with Rudi Garcia

Following a disappointing finish to their 2022-23 campaign, Al-Nassr made the decision to part ways with Rudi Garcia.

With their title aspirations slipping away and results not meeting expectations, the club felt the need for a managerial change.

Ronaldo’s Influence

There were speculations that Cristiano Ronaldo had a say in the decision to change managers, as the five-time Ballon d’Or winner became a leading figure in Riyadh.

His influence and stature within the team may have played a role in the decision-making process.
