Where are the ‘big five’ leagues in world soccer?
In terms of influence and fans, Europe dominates the top five leagues. The English Premier League (EPL), Spanish Primera Liga (La Liga), Italian Serie A, German Bundesliga, and French Ligue 1 are generally considered to be the top five leagues.
However, there is one person who believes that the big five leagues could change in the future. It’s none other than “superstar” Cristiano Ronaldo (Al Nasr).안전놀이터
He has played in the EPL (Manchester United), La Liga (Real Madrid), and Serie A (Italy). He currently plays in the Saudi Arabian league.
Ronaldo signed for Al Nasr late last year for a world record €200 million ($290 million) salary. Ronaldo isn’t the only world-class star in the kingdom.
Recently, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal offered Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) twice as much as Ronaldo.
On April 24, Ronaldo scored a come-from-behind goal against Al-Shabaab to lead his team to a 3-2 victory. After the game, Ronaldo told Saudi Arabia’s SSC Channel that he believes “the Saudi league can be one of the top five leagues in the world.”
“The league is getting better and better,” Ronaldo said. Next year it will grow even more than this year. Step by step, I think it will be among the top five leagues in the world. The country has incredible potential, incredible fan support, and a great league. We just need more time, more players, more infrastructure.”
