According to Al-Weam, citing confirmed sources, Ronaldo is leaning towards the administration’s decision to agree to Garcia’s departure due to fluctuating results in the last period and his dissatisfaction with the level of the team.
Sources have indicated that Ronaldo wants a world-class manager to lead next season, like another Frenchman, Zinedine Zidane, or Portuguese Jose Mourinho, the current manager of Italian club Roma.
Sources within the Al-Nasr club have confirmed that the club’s board of directors is considering sacking Rudy Garcia.
And sources have indicated in exclusive statements to Kura that there is a difference in Al-Nasr’s administration between firing him now or waiting for the next derby match against Al-Hilal next Tuesday.
And she said that there is a tendency to appoint a junior coach who won the championship title last Monday through an agreement, or as an interim coach until the end of the season if the decision is made officially.
Sources indicated that Al-Nasr’s administration would decide within 48 hours whether to fire him or continue until at least the Al-Hilal match.
This move was made due to dissatisfaction with the technical approach of the coach, comments on the team’s performance, accompanied by a collective decline in the level of players.
The team’s negative draw with Al Fayhaa and Al Ittihad’s three-point lead in the league caused problems in Al Nasrawi’s home, especially in light of the odd coach substitutions in the match.
Last summer, Al-Nasr signed a two-season deal with Rudi Garcia to take over from Argentinian Miguel Russo.
Garcia has led to 26 wins in various competitions, during which he has won 18 matches against 5 draws and 3 losses.
Al-Nasr are second in the league with 53 points, three points behind leaders Al-Ittihad.
