We don't have enough words to express what a legendary career Ronaldo has had for his clubs and his country,
That is why, today, we present you with the best quotes on the Portuguese maestro made by some of the greatest legends of the beautiful game.
"“He has magic in his boots. The first thing you notice about him is that he is incredibly quick and very, very powerful for such a young man. He has great, close control and his technique is excellent. He believes he can do anything with the ball, and that confidence makes him very special indeed.”"- Eusebio
"“Ronaldo can do whatever he wants as a player. There are some things he does with the ball that make me touch my head and wonder how he did it.”"- Luis Figo
"“There have been a few players described as the new George Best over the years, but this (Ronaldo comparison) is the first time it’s been a compliment to me.”"- George Best
"“He does things I have never seen from any other player and it really is marvellous to watch. It takes a great player to grab the bull by the horns and make things happen, but he has done it repeatedly.”"- Sir Bobby Charlton
"“Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo. I think he’s the best because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.”"- Pele
"“When you play with Ronaldo on your team, you are already 1-0 up.”"- Zinedine Zidane
"“He is the best. The best in the world, yes. Probably the best ever. I saw Maradona a couple of times. I never saw Pele. But Cristiano is amazing. This man is the best… Cristiano is a goals machine. He is an incredible player. He is like Zidane, there will never be another Ronaldo.”"- Jose Mourinho
"“We’ve had some great players at this club in my 20 years, but he’s up with the best.”"- Sir Alex Ferguson
