Prior to the announcement, Al-Nassr had 860,000 followers on the site; today, the group has 5.5 million. In addition, his official announcement post has received over 1.2 million comments in addition to over 30 million likes.
Al-Nassr appears to be experiencing the CR7 effect, but given the crowd shouts during their most recent home game, many are looking forward to him making his debut.
