Ahead of Sunday nigh's tie against AC Milan, defender Simon Kjaer is looking forward to playing against the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
"It has always been a pleasure to play against him. Since the first time 11 or 12 years ago.
"He has changed a lot compared to before, but he has always been a champion and there’s no need to discuss it.
"He lives for goals. He can play a game a bit off, but if there’s a ball in the 90th minute, he does everything to score that goal.
"He is always there during the whole game, which is why he has always been at the top of football for the last 10 to 15 years."
