Football fans often compare Ronaldo with other great football players because of his achievements in his football career so far. Cristiano Ronaldo is often compared with the likes of Lionel Messi, De Li Ma Ronaldo, Pele and Diego Maradona.
Antonio Cassano said Cristiano Ronaldo is not among the top five players of all time in football history.
Some football fans may not know who Antonio Cassano is but he was one of the best players in his generation.
He won the Suppercoppa Italiana with Roma and was also named the Serie A Young Footballer of the Year in 2001 and 2003. Cassano later joined the Los blancos in 2006 after his departure from Roma.
Cassano was unable to secure a place for himself at Real Madrid following his inconsistent performances and poor behaviour. He also played for Inter milan and AC milan before announcing his retirement from football in 2017. Ronaldo has proved his worth on several occasions for both his club and country. He was among the reason why Manchester United defeated Atalanta 3-2 in the UEFA Champions league. Ronaldo inspired his team to a comeback win over the Serie A club.
Ronaldo also scored the winning goal for Manchester United during their clash with Villareal in the UEFA Champions league.
In addition, Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest goalscorer of all time in the UEFA Champions league history. He's also the all time leading goalscorer in international competition.
The Portuguese Striker has won different titles in the top five European leagues. Ronaldo has won 5 UEFA Champions league titles, Laliga, Serie A, Premier league and other league titles.
Ronaldo has also played for Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus and he managed to score more than 100 goals for each team. He's the highest goalscorer of all time in Real Madrid with 438 goals in 450 matches.
Ronaldo has won 5 Ballon d'or in his football career so far, he also won the Euro 2016 and the UEFA Nations league with Portugal.
In my opinion, Cassano is very wrong to say that Ronaldo is not among the top five players of all time.
In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are often considered the greatest players of all time.
