    The worst experience I ever had was playing against Ronaldo when we faced Internazionale in the 1998 UEFA Cup Final in Paris.
    He’s an incredible player. I have watched that game on video so many times since then, trying to work out what I did wrong. We lost 3-0 but I don’t think now it was my fault.
    Ronaldo was simply unstoppable. He is so quick he makes everyone else look as if they are standing still.” - Alessandro Nesta

    I watched him and I thought at the time, we'd never see a striker with so much swagger and guile on the ball, and I still think so maybe Henry is really close. I see where Firmino learnt his poise.

    Lazio team was really good side back than with Nesta and Crespo.

    Great striker, one of the best strikers ever. Compared to C.Ronaldo and Messi? No, not as good, but on the same level as a Benzema or Henry for sure. We have a special category for Cr7 and Messi, it's called the 11 best players ever to play football (all positions) and it looks like this: Schmeichel, Cafu, Stam, Maldini, R.Carlos, Pirlo, Xavi, Zidane, Messi, Ronaldo, Pele.
