Brazilian Ronaldo mentions out 5 players he loves watching but doesn’t acknowledges Cristiano Ronaldo in the list while calling names.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Ronaldo have been the greatest players of their generations. The similarity in their names has also made people compare two ‘Ronaldos’ in the past.
Moreover, both players have left a legacy at Real Madrid and have won several accolades. Despite all of it, Luis Ronaldo doesn’t seem to be a big fan on the Portuguese sensation.
Brazilian Ronaldo was asked about the five players he enjoys watching the most, and he named Lionel Messi as the No.1 player while leaving out the Portuguese superstar.
“Messi, of course, he is number one, it is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar,” he said. “I also like Salah, Hazard, Neymar, that I love watching him play, of course, Mbappe,”
The French striker has often been compared to Ronaldo. But the legendary Brazilian doesn’t like comparing two players from different generations.
“We have similar things, but I never liked comparisons, especially between players of different generations, because the situations are different.” he further said.
Nevertheless, this statement doesn’t mean that R9 think any less of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese player is among the best players in the world and the former understands it.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is now spending the last years of his careers at Juventus, and at the age of 35, he has shown no sign of stopping, as last night against Hellas Verona he scored 10th goal in 10 consecutive games.
