'Ronaldo Is Not Real's Best Ever Player!’

'Cristiano Ronaldo Is Not Real Madrid's Best Ever Player!’

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 29, 2018 05:01 PM @KeeganKruger

A former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo insists the Portuguese superstar, not the best player to have ever played for Real Madrid, despite being the club’s all-time leading goalscorer.

10 Attackers Linked With A Move To Real In This Window

The former Manchester United winger stunned the world when revealed that his time in Madrid has come to an end and that he decided to start a new life in Italy with Serie A giants Juventus.

Spain international Dani Carvajal, who played alongside the 33-year-old until last month, revealed in an interview that he considered former club captain Raul as Los Blancos greatest ever player, although Ronaldo has all the records.

“Raul. I identify with him a lot,” the right-back answered, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

“He is a squad player, a player who won everything based on work and effort.

“I think it is not the player that you say, "He is the fastest, he is the one who has the best control of the ball, the one who better heads-up".

“But he did everything right. For the goals he has done, for what he has given Real Madrid, for me - he is the flagship player of Real Madrid.”

'Ronaldo Needs To Be Replaced!'

Raul played 741 games for the Spanish giants in his career, scoring 323 goals and assisted in a further 65 strikes.

@YIDO Let us agree to disagree on this one,I am a big Zizou fan,he warmed my soul everytime i watched him play,but i still believe Messi and Ronaldo are on another level,and not only on goals but on every aspect of the beautiful game,accept maybe Messi for headed goals and defending,Ronaldo defending and being more of a team player.

Raul was a good player not the best player. Dani is from Spain same as Raul so he feel ashamed that a foreigner could come and take the club to new heights. Comparing Ronaldo with Raul is an insults, yes there are those good players who once played for Real such as Zidane, Brazilian Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos etc

@YIDO Emotionally loaded observations and commercial objectives can never leads to rational decisions. Populism prevails in the case of Ronaldo and Messi

@Breezy@1985 ... Was Harry Kane the BEST PLAYER at the WC Russia? if not why not?. The topic was about CR7 being the BEST EVER PLAYER at Real Madrid... The children on this site seem to think that he is the best because of his goal scoring ability hence they keep quoting his goal stats. Messi has never played for R.Madrid, Zidane has, are you really trying to tell me that CR7 is better than Zidane? I really couldn't tell you about the B'dor. who knows what agendas those people have and why. So many players in the past have been overlooked.

Dani is 100% wrong. Shame he only says this when the guy is no longer at their service. I pray they're Drawn in the same group for UCL....

@YIDO explain why only Ronaldo and Messi have won world best footballer or Ballondo'r if you which for the past decade.Mind you the point allocation formula is the same.Ronaldo can score with both left and right foot,he is good in the air,good with free kicks,has skill and flair,can also assist,For me that look like a complete footballer.

@Simpeter I dont get your point,Ronaldo has scored 85 international goals in 152 apperances,2nd highest of all time.He won all trophies on offer with an avarage Man U team accept for Giggs,Schooles and Tavez. Goals aside Raul is not a better football player than Ronaldo period.Raul was more like Mambush Mudau easy tap in goals,no skill or flair.

Carvajal is right and wrong at the same time, Ronaldo is not the greatest player of all time at Madrid but he definitely is light years ahead Raul however he is not greater than Zizou.
