Speaking ahead of Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid tonight, a certain manager in Europe has insisted anything is possible with Cristiano Ronaldo, whom he says is the toughest player he has gone up against as a boss.
The Italian giants will go into the second leg of their round of 16 tie on Tuesday night 2-0 down on aggregate, but with Ronaldo in their ranks, not many will be writing the Serie A leaders off just yet.
Asked whether or not he believes the Bianconeri can still advance to the next round despite their current deficit, Borussia Monchengladbach boss Dieter Hecking, who went up against Ronaldo with Wolfsburg in the 2015/16 season, believes the Portuguese has the power to help his team turn things around.
"Ronaldo is capable of everything, he can also score three goals again, as he did against my Wolfsburg. Of course he can," he said, according to Calciomercato.
"Atletico has the best defensive phase in Europe and an excellent attack: without Ronaldo, who can invent goals in any way, it would be impossible, but Cristiano is... if I said that Ronaldo is not the strongest player I have ever met, I would lie.
"I remember that night, I told the team that we should not be afraid, neither of him nor of the Bernabeu, but at 17 (minutes), we were already 2-0 with a double by CR7, it was monstrous."
Ronaldo has scored just once in Europe for Juventus so far this season, but will certainly be looking to inspire his team to victory in Turin on Tuesday night.
