Former Real Madrid player and a one time winner of the elusive Ballon d’Or has hailed the Los Blancos and Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for his performances every season from the past few years and was extremely impressed to see the Real Madrid’s talisman better his own performances every season.
“It’s incredible, he shows every year that he can beat himself,” he told Omnisport. “Every year he has motivation to keep going, to keep scoring and be the best player in the world.
“Sometimes when you have won a lot of things in your career, it is normal to slow down a little bit so maybe the motivation in your mind and mentality is not easy.
“But he is so incredible like [Lionel] Messi because these guys have won everything they could and they still want to win, they still want to be the best. It’s incredible.”
Ronaldo won his third UEFA Champions League title last season and also helped his national side Portugal gain the European Championship trophy. Ronaldo is also likely to grab his fourth Ballon d’Or title for his exploits last season.
