Cristiano Ronaldo comments on Mbappe-Haaland rivalry
Cristiano Ronaldo proposed a diplomatic take on the fight between Mbappe and Erling Haaland to become the next best player on the planet.
What did Cristiano Ronaldo say?
The Portugal and Juve superstar knows what it takes to scale those heights, like a five-time Ballon d’Or winner with countless records to his name. Two exciting young men are eager to follow in his illustrious footsteps, and the baton of the world’s best players may soon be passed on from Lionel Messi and Cristiano to the next generation. When asked about Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano said it’s hard to pick just one player to say this one will be the best, but thinks it’s exciting to see this new generation of young players like Mbappe and Haaland come through. Ronaldo also said that some players can have one or two great seasons, the really great players are the ones who keep doing it season after season and it’s not easy to do. It takes a lot of work and a lot of commitment.
Ronaldo’s reputation on stake
At the age of 36, the all-time great is beginning to end towards the end of his remarkable career and has shown no signs of slowing down yet, with many pushing him to play beyond his 40th birthday. Cristiano became the fastest player in Juventus history to reach 100 goals per club after going through a century of effort at Man Utd and Real, and he hopes to do enough to make his legacy stand the test of time. Cristiano also added that he hopes to be remembered as one of the great players, someone who has worked hard, who has always done his best to help his team and will be part of the history of the game. It may be that Cristiano’s reputation has improved further away from Italy, with a summer relocation for a man approaching the final 12 months of his contract at Turin.
