Portugal Legend Eusebio: Great to have Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

Portugal’s greatest footballer, Eusebio, has also spoken about Cristiano Ronaldo’s switch from Manchester United to Real Madrid. The 1966 World Cup hero praised Real Madrid as a great club and revealed his joy at Ronaldo’s transfer.

“I am very pleased, because Real Madrid is a team that I love a lot in Spain. They are the most important team in the country, just as Benfica are in Portugal and Manchester United in England.

“I am pleased that Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a contract here, and I am sure that we will succeed in Spanish football.”

Many people are questioning Real Madrid’s ability to achieve success with money, while some doubt Ronaldo’s potential in Spain. But Eusebio, who has other beliefs, said:

“I cannot define him [Ronaldo]. He is now the god of another world. I think this year, Real Madrid will not have problems because at the moment he is the best player in the world.”

Well, this thought is certainly not Xavi’s opinion. The 29-year-old midfielder – who just won a bronze medal at the Confederations Cup – declared:

“The best player in the world is Lionel Messi and there’s no chance he will switch allegiance,”

And talking about Barcelona’s desire to win the treble once again, he continued:

“We also have Andres Iniesta, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto’o and with that kind of luxury, we are capable of doing anything.

“As for Ronaldo, I wouldn’t want him here. At Barca, we do not have room for players who fill gossip magazines. We are hard workers and sportsmen but he, on the other hand, is uncontrollable.”
