Al-Nassr manager, Rudi Garcia, has told his players they must not always pass to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Garcia was speaking after their 1-0 win over Al Ettifaq, a game in which Ronaldo made his debut for the Saudi Arabian side.
The 37-year-old failed to find the back of the net in the game.
Speaking afterwards, Garcia admitted the players tried too hard to get Ronaldo into the game at times.
“It’s very important for the players to play normally and not always try to give the ball to Cristiano.
“I told them they need to make the right choices on the pitch. Obviously when Cristiano or Talisca are alone and asking for the ball we need to give them the ball. These two players are able to make the difference.
“Tonight, I think that sometimes we had good positions to cross but not enough people in the box – and sometimes no Ronaldo and no Talisca. We need to work on that, to have one of them in the box and maybe the other playing outside the box,” Garcia said.
