' I Will Tell My Children I Played With Ronaldo'

Juventus star Alvaro Morata had some special praise for Cristiano Ronaldo, who described as 'one of the best players in football history'.

Morata is now playing with Ronaldo for a second time after the pair were together at Real Madrid, before they both went their seperate ways.

With the pair linking up quite well this season, the Spanish forward says he hopes to support the five-time Ballon d'Or winner for a long time.

"I've known him for some time. On some occasions when a normal person wouldn't score, he scores.

"In Parma I gave him an assist that only he could see and understand. I understand his movements and what he likes to do.

"I often take his men away by moving, and I think it helps him not to always have two or three players around him. It's a pleasure to play with him.

"He is still one of the best in football history. He's great, has incredible quality and he can play wherever he wants, whether it is as a number nine, 10 or 11.

"I can only enjoy it every day, and I hope to support him for a long time to come.

"It's a pride for me. I grew up watching him and when I got here thinking about playing with him and [Paulo] Dybala thrilled me.

"They are players of a higher level. We have an excellent relationship even off the pitch. I will tell my children that I played with them."
