The Portuguese, speaking at his unveiling as LiveScore’s Official Global Brand Ambassador, Ronaldo was asked which player he considered to have the potential to be the best in the world one day, and the Juventus star couldn’t keep to just one.

“It is hard to choose just one player to say this one will be the best, but I think it is exciting to see this new generation of young players, like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé, who are coming through.

“Some players can have one or two great seasons, the really great players are the ones that keep doing it season after season, and that is not so easy to do. It takes a lot of hard work, and a lot of commitment.”
