“Ronaldo’s presence guarantees a huge advantage for our team, because we learn from him every day. We see his tremendous technical and physical level,” he said.
He praised Ronaldo, saying, “He was born to challenge. And he continues to challenge. He reported the first goal and came out of the pressure.”
