'Nobody Is More Complete Than Ronaldo'
'Nobody Is More Complete Than Cristiano Ronaldo'
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has rivalled Lionel Messi for football's biggest individual prizes over the past decade, has now been described as the most complete forward in the game by one of the world's best defenders.
On Wednesday, the Portuguese attacker will go up against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final, a competition he has thrived in for many years.
Jerome Boateng, who has competed against the 33-year-old a number of times in the competition, has now claimed that Ronaldo is almost impossible to tie down as he has so many elements to his game.
"It's impossible to completely stifle Ronaldo, we can only stop him as a team," he said, according to Sport360.
"An attacker cannot be more complete than him – left foot, right foot, head, he controls everything and in front of the goal, he's a machine."
Ronaldo has won the Champions League four times in his career, while his main rival in the sport, Messi, has also won it on four occasions.
The Portuguese forward is yet again leading the charts as the tournament's top scorer this season, having struck 15 goals in just 10 matches so far.
