Miroslav Klose has called Brazil legend Ronaldo ‘the most complete player ever’, report beIN Sport.
The Germany striker broke Ronaldo’s all-time World Cup goals record during this tournament but quick to lavish praise on the Brazil legend.
An extract from the article shows what Klose said: “He was an outstanding player,” Klose told reporters at Germany’s training base. “I play in Italy and everyone I’ve ever talked to there said that Ronaldo was the best player that ever played in Italy. For me he was the most complete player ever.”
Klose concedes his contemporary may have been disappointed to see his record fail first-hand.
“Obviously it must be bitter for him that he was in the stadium when I overtook him in the match against Brazil,” added Klose. “Before he sent a message out ‘Klose – welcome in the club of 15’. I can now send out this message: ‘Miroslav Klose in the club of 16 and everyone’s welcome to join’.”
Klose will have an opportunity to add to his tally on Sunday when Germany clash with Argentina in the World Cup final!
