Football fans across the micro-blogging App twitter, have expressed their disappointment with Al-Nassr over the club’s decision to terminate the contract of Cameroon forward, Vincent Aboubakar, Newspremises has gathered.
Aboubakar put up an outstanding performance for Cameroon at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, leading his team and scoring twice in three games.
The Cameroonian who scored an iconic goal at the 2022 World Cup, was expected to form a lethal partnership with Ronaldo following the latter’s move to the Middle East.
However, the supposed partnership hit the rock in an ironic event as Aboubakar was brutally fired by Al-Nassr to make room for Cristiano Ronaldo, who was signed by the team earlier this week.
The Saudi Arabia club made the choice to part ways with Aboubakar because they needed to make room in their roster because they had used up all of their foreign players, according to SportBible.
The Cameroonian was rumored to be on the verge of signing a loan deal with Manchester United, who are in desperate need of a forward following Ronaldo’s contentious exit.
Amid the ongoing situation at Al-Nassr, many football fanatics, particularly on the African continent, took to social media to register their displeasure with Aboubakar’s exit.
Below are some of the comments sampled by Sports Brief:
@Hajjsani04 believed Vincent Aboubakar has been served a raw deal by Al-Nassr:
“It’s unfair. This player was very happy to see CR7 in the club and he is ready to be benched for Ronaldo to play.”
Another fan, @aeorzooo argued Al-Nassr’s decision was based on Ronaldo’s off-the-pitch additions:
“Sad for Vincent who would have been more decisive on the pitch than Cristiano. But hey, he brings back fewer followers. Damage.”
@cfcportal boldly claimed the Cameroon captain was better than Ronaldo:
“He’s literally the better player.”
@igrBARCAenjoyer opined with the assertion of @cfcportal:
“I think they terminated the wrong player.”
@Abather_Idba believes CR7 has ruined the fortunes of Al-Nassr following Aboubakar’s departure:
“Ronaldo ruins yet another club. Typical.”
Meanwhile, Ronaldo will now likely make his debut in Al-Nassr’s Pro League home game against Al-Ettifaq on January 22, GOAL reports.
