Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said that Real Madrid player could in fact be the greatest player to ever come to the Spanish side. He even went as far as saying that the 28-year-old Portuguese is a better player then legendary Frenchmen Zinedine Zidane.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is more talented than Los Blanco's legend Zinedine Zidane as the sides prepare to face each other in the last 16 of the Champions League.
The Portugal forward became the world's most expensive player when he made his £80 million move from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu in 2009 after winning the Ballon d'Or in a glittering career with the Red Devils.
And while the 71-year-old manager will be hoping his former prodigy can be kept quiet enough for the Premier League leaders to progress in Europe, he thinks the 28-year-old's skills surpass even those of the famous 'Zizou.'
