Ronaldo "helps Al Nassr create two-man manager shortlist" to hire elite coach

Former manager Rudi Garcia was let go by Al Nassr while the team was only three points out of first place in the Saudi Pro League.

Following "mutual agreement," the club announced that "Head Coach Rudi Garcia has left the Club."

The entire board at Al Nassr appreciates the hard work that Rudi and his team have put in over the past eight months.

Garcia's apparent breaking point came after a reported altercation in the locker room with players following the scoreless draw with Al Feiha.

After expressing his displeasure with the Frenchman's tactics to the board, Ronaldo has reportedly been asked to participate in the search for a new manager.

CBS Sports reports that Ronaldo has ordered the team to make an all-out effort to sign one of his previous managers.

Jose Mourinho and Zinedine Zidane are two of the potential options.

The former has reportedly been offered a massive deal that could earn him £52 million per year.

The future of the Portuguese player at Roma is uncertain, therefore he is "seriously thinking" about the offer.

Both have a long history of tremendous success when paired with Ronaldo.

With Zidane, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star won three consecutive Champions Leagues.

Personally, his best season in terms of goals scored occurred under Mourinho, when he scored 60.

With his eye-popping £173 million annual salary at the club, Ronaldo has considerable sway in the organization's decision-making processes.

Under-19 coach Dinko Jelicic has been promoted to fill in for Garcia ahead of Tuesday's crucial match against Al-Hilal.

Ronaldo has suggested Al Nassr hire a number of different coaches, including Zinedine Zidane.

Jose Mourinho is the other target he has earmarked
