Al Hilal star, Neymar admits that the exodus of European football stars to the Saudi Arabian League was started by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neymar is the latest star to come to the Saudi Pro League. The presence of Neymar who is included in the ranks of the world's best players at the moment makes the quality of the Saudi Arabian League continue to increase.

Neymar admits that the figure of Ronaldo is the person who started the massive exodus of top players who previously played in Europe. As a result of Ronaldo's move, now the Saudi Pro League will be even more flashy.

"I believe Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who started all of this and everyone called him 'crazy' and a number of other things."

"Today, you all can see that this league continues to grow," Neymar said in a video uploaded by Al Hilal.

Ronaldo came to Saudi Arabia and joined Al Nassr in early 2023. Since Ronaldo arrived, the Saudi Pro League has immediately come under intense scrutiny.

The reason is, Ronaldo is a big player who took the surprising step of going to Saudi Arabia. This is somewhat uncommon in European football.

After Ronaldo played for half a season, the Saudi Pro League then intensified to bring in European League stars.

Currently there are many top players who have come to Saudi Arabia. These players are Sadio Mane, Riyad Mahrez, Roberto Firmino, Karim Benzema, Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, Marcelo Brozovic, and others.

"They've changed a lot. They've brought in a lot of signings."

"Yes, of course the league will be very competitive especially after the signings made at the start of the season," said Neymar.
