Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Saudi Pro League Record, Claims 'Records Follow Me'

Cristiano Ronaldo expressed joy on social media after setting a new record for most goals in a single Saudi Pro League season. The Portugal and Al Nassr star netted twice against Al Ittihad, bringing his total for the season to 35 goals, surpassing Moroccan Abderrazak Hamdallah's previous record of 34 goals in the 2018-19 season.

"I do not follow the records, the records follow me," Ronaldo wrote on X after the match.

Ronaldo's goals against Al Ittihad also brought his total for the season to 50 goals across all competitions for Al Nassr. He will next be in action against Al-Hilal in the King's Cup final, facing the unbeaten side.
