Rohit Sharma Heaps Praise On Cristiano Ronaldo

When asked to say something about Ronaldo, Rohit replied, “Yes, of course. Who doesn’t love Ronaldo? He is the king. What he has done with his career is simply outstanding. You have to applaud whatever he has achieved in his career”.
“It is not easy because of the background that he came from. He had a very rough time at the start. I appreciate all these people who have a hard time in their career at the start, and towards the end, they have gone on to make it very big out of whatever opportunities they had,” he added.
Cristiano Ronaldo Has Proved That He Is The GOAT
Ronaldo is the first player to win the Champions League five times. So far, Cristiano Ronaldo has won three Premier League titles, two La Liga titles, one Serie A and five Champions League. The striker currently has 99 international goals to his name and he would look to go past 109 goals of Iran’s Ali Daei. If he reaches the feat, he will become the top international scorer of all time.
If Ronaldo manages to reach the top of the goal-scoring charts this year in Serie A, he will become the first player in history to have been top goal-scorer in the English (Premier League), Spanish (La Liga) and Italian (Serie A) leagues.
He is currently on the second spot in the Serie A golden boot race with 21 goals this season. The only player ahead of him is Lazio’s Ciro Immobile who has scored 27 goals this season so far. Ronaldo’s prowess is clearly intact during the later stage of his career and he is completely in shape to be the best star globally.
