He said: “No question, at this moment Ronaldo is the best player in the world.
“The great thing about him, he does not do it just in training. He does it on the pitch. And he does not do it for himself. He does it for the team and for the fans and for winning the game.
“He is unbelievable. Yes, Cristiano can do the same job as Maradona or Pele or Best. He can be like them.” “What more can you say about Cristiano?” questioned United midfielder Michael Carrick.
“He is the best player in the world just now. The bigger the challenge, the bigger the performance. He is going to have an awful lot to say in terms of how we finish the season.
“At the moment we just have to give him the ball and let him get on with it. Put it this way, I am glad he is in my team and not anyone else’s.”
