Cristiano Ronaldo named ‘greatest player’ in football history
Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the “greatest player” in the history of football by his new Manchester United team-mate Harry Maguire.
The 36-year-old who has won the Ballon d’Or five times already, made a sensational return to Old Trafford after 12 years.
Maguire is optimistic that Ronaldo will have an influence both on and off the pitch, as the Red Devils fight for trophies this season.
“Yeah, of course, it’s amazing. Obviously, I’m away with England at the moment so my focus is on the game tomorrow but for him to sign back for the club and, for me, he is the greatest player to play the game.
“It’s amazing to have him at the club and I’m sure he’s going to have a huge impact on and off the field, and many players can look and learn and improve, and then, obviously, it’s going to improve our team as well with his goalscoring record.
“So it’s amazing to have him in the club and I’m looking forward to meeting him in a few days,” Maguire said at a press conference ahead of England’s hat-trick of World Cup qualifiers this month.
