Cristiano Ronaldo is still finding ways to keep his rivalry with Lionel Messi alive.

Ronaldo said Monday the Saudi Pro League is "better" than Major League Soccer and that he has no intention of playing in Europe again.

In December, the 38-year-old kick-started the mass exodus to Saudi Arabia, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al-Nassr reportedly worth more than $200 million per season. Longtime rival Messi moved to David Beckham's Inter Miami in MLS this month on a deal that could reportedly pay him as much as $60 million in salary, bonuses, and equity.

Ronaldo said he's happy with the decision he made and that he's the reason Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante, and Roberto Firmino followed him east.
