LONDON, United Kingdom, July 14 – Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire for football separates him from the rest as the best current player in the world, believes Sir Alex Ferguson.

After leading Real Madrid to a second Champions League title in three years, Ronaldo captained Portugal to their maiden European Championship crown against Euro 2016 hosts France on June 10.

Ferguson, who was at the Stade de France to see Ronaldo lift the Henri Delaunay Trophy, is adamant that the forward’s dedication to the sport is a part of the reason for his success.

The 74-year-old legendary manager enjoyed a six-year relationship with Ronaldo at Manchester United and insists the Portuguese forward’s rewards are justified for his effort over the years.

‘He has an incredible desire for football, Cristiano is looking forward to each workout. He always wants to be better, to win. He especially loves these big games,’ Ferguson told BILD.

‘During my time at Manchester United, Cristiano was the player who developed the most. Through much hard work.

‘He constantly worked on his shooting technique, with the right, left, his heading ability, his bounce.

‘His performance improvement is incredible. And what is remarkable, today’s football is so athletic, so fast.

‘Usually top players can only play for about five or six years at the highest level, then it’s over. Cristiano has been doing this for over 10 years. That makes him so exceptional.

‘Every generation has its special footballer, Cristiano is currently.’
