Sporting Lisbon chief: Man Utd’s Ronaldo is better than Figo

Pereira said: “At the moment, he is better than Figo at the same age.

“He has more polish, but we still do not know if he will go on to obtain what Luis has obtained during his career.

“When we first signed him, he was a child from the streets. We had to help him mentally adjust to the discipline of a football club environment.”
