Ronaldo has had an impressive start to the campaign, having already bagged eight goals in just five games.
The four-time Ballon d'Or winner is also two goals away from equaling Real Madrid's all-time top goal scorer, while he needs one goal to reach 500 career goals.
"There are things I don't understand in football... how can people criticise Cristiano Ronaldo after all he has done?" Quaresma told TSF.
"He is one of the players I admire the most in terms of mentality - I've never seen another player so strong in that way.
"Every year he scores 50 or 60 goals, competing for the Ballon d'Or. I don't know what more you can ask of him.
"I think there are many times when people have been unfair with Cristiano, but all this is in the background and gives him strength to go forward."
