'Nobody Is More Complete Than Ronaldo'

'Nobody Is More Complete Than Cristiano Ronaldo'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 24, 2018 08:33 AM @KurtLaduma

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.

Neymar Names 6 Players Who Can Make A Difference At World Cup

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.

CR7 Now 7th Among All-Time Top Goalscorers Across All European Leagues

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.

Do you agree with Boateng's sentiments? Let us know in the comments section below.

@Mpho wa Cosmos if you close Ronaldo's supply you have simultaneuosly closed him down. With Messi you need a lot of bodies every time he touches the ball. You have to be compact in order to shut him down which is what most teams do in ucl. Barca coaches should have noticed this and take advantage of it. BTW Messi has already carried Barca to league triump that Madrid plays in.

Boateng reminds me of his former coach who said "If Madrid can Bench Bale and CR7 on the stands that's the only way we can win"

@Voltaire your comment confirm that Messi is human. So no more saying Messi is not human or genius because a genius always find a way to solve things. He is not limited of plans. The word genius must be used on CR7 bcz when he can't run faster or take on defenders he focus on helping the team with another tool. Left, right, head, penalty penaldooooo

Bayern defender Jerome Boateng said on Monday. “An attacker can not be more complete than him — left foot, right foot, head, he controls everything and in front of the goal, he’s a machine”.

People who know and watch football will know Messi doesn't dissapear during important matches but teams who beat Barca win beacause they are successful in closing him down which they do in numbers.

To save the trouble, in the original aricle in his words Boateng said 'Ronaldo is the most complete 'striker'...

The Difference between Messi and Cr7 is that in the Matches where it Matters the Most Messi normally disappears under his own Shaddow,whereas Cr7 is the Go-to Guy...those r the ingredients of a complete player

I'm Barca fan but for me i also think Ronaldo is better than Messi...we beat Psg 5-1 because Neymar got us a penalty and scored that goal...Messi score goals when we winning...he dont help us when we losing..we have seen Ronaldo helping Madrid In so many matches and think Ronaldo is the reason Buffon didn't won a ucl in his career
