"It's always good to coach the best in the world. He's on that team, as a man who will go down in football history. So it will be a pleasure to work with him, as with everyone else who follows him", highlighted the coach, when questioned about the Portuguese international.

Luís Castro was speaking to journalists after Al Nassr's victory (2-0) over Alverca, in a private game played in Albufeira, as part of the Saudi team's training camp in the Algarve, which runs until the 21st.

On how he will enhance the qualities of the 38-year-old Portuguese international, the coach noted that "players are enhanced by the team they are in, by the context", and that Cristiano Ronaldo will help and benefit from that context.

Cristiano Ronaldo should join the group this week, before the friendly game with Farense, scheduled for Friday, at Estádio Algarve.
