Apart from that, his club, Al-Ittihad, which is located in Jeddah, will make it easier for Umrah pilgrims to witness Benzema. So that the popularity of the Saudi Arabian League will increase.
“It’s really fitting that Al-Ittihad is in Jeddah, it’s close to Mecca and many Umrah pilgrims come through here, so it’s easier if you want to watch the home game. If Ronaldo is in Riyadh, it’s really far if you want to watch it,” wrote @mahmudixxx.
“Whichever club he is in the Saudi Arabian League, the important thing is that the club can immediately make a statue of a bicycle with Benzema’s name on it. Not bad, to add a niche + branding to football lovers from Al Indaunisiah,” said @memoriaxxx.
