Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has named two young players in Europe to Lionel Messi and him.
Ronaldo tipped Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward, Kylian Mbappe and Borussia Dortmund forward, Erling Haaland to become the next best players in the world.
C. Ronaldo stated this at his unveiling as LiveScore’s Official Global Brand Ambassador.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner said he hopes he has created a legacy that will be emulated after he finally hangs up his boots.
When asked to single out one player he expects to see dominate on the global scale he named two, perhaps with an eye on the kind of rivalry he has enjoyed with Lionel Messi over the years.
“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. That is not so easy to do. It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of commitment.”
