Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the main topics of conversation at the World Cup, and Jimmy Conrad compared the player to Michael Jordan.


How was everything?

Cristiano Ronaldo came to this World Cup from the back of Morgan’s bombed interview that led to his departure from the Red Devils. In recent days, the news has been about the substitution of Cristiano against Switzerland. Ronaldo’s participation in the World Cup raises a lot of debate that has reached the US. The latest to voice his opinion was former American quarterback Jimmy Conrad, who played on Team USA between 2005 and 2010.


What did Conrad say about Cristiano Ronaldo?

Jimmy Conrad referred to the current struggles of the Portuguese and compared it to a moment in the career of former professional basketball player Michael Jordan. The former USA national team player posted on Twitter that Cristiano Ronaldo officially stepped out on his Michael Jordan with the Washington Wizards stage. According to Jimmy Conrad, it will never be the same again.


A little about the topic

The ex-Chicago Bull star has lived the last two years in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, in which Michael Jordan had a statistic in which the player only scored two points in some games. In some fights, Michael Jordan was seen scoring only one shot in 9 attempts, which was never the case in his career.

Those American basketball records caught Jimmy’s attention to compare the player to football striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who this season alone has scored one goal in the PL and two in the Europa League with the Red Devils. In the World Cup, he scored against Ghana on penalties, which was Portugal’s debut in that World Cup and that goal made Cristiano Ronaldo the only player in history to score in five World Cups.
