Goal of the season?
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has labelled former teammate and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo legend a ‘joke’.
The Portuguese star has been extremely impressive over the past few months and has gone from having the worst season of his career to a brilliant one.
Now, everyone is talking about that incredible goal against Juventus on Tuesday.
Rio Ferdinand has labelled Ronaldo a joke after the strike, emphasising just how good it was.
‘He’s in a relentless pursuit of greatness and produces a moment of brilliance,’ Ferdinand said.
‘To see one of the greatest if not the greatest player on the planet produce a movement like this. Look how high he is off the floor? He’s a joke.
‘Another goal I was fortunate to see was that Wayne Rooney goal [against Manchester City in 2011], it may have been a bit shinier, but it’s the occasion, where he is scoring this goal.
‘The thing is about this guy, he turns up, every time he is asked to deliver on the big stage, he delivers.’
That lead to a discussion on to what was the best ever overhead kick.
Ferdinand suggested that Ronaldo’s was the best due to the other famous goals having a flaw.
‘I think Trevor Sinclair’s goal was actually better but that wasn’t on this stage, Wayne [Rooney’s] was off his shin, sorry Wayne but it was…’ said Ferdinand.
‘Great players have the ability to take our breath away, we take them for granted.’
Just how high did Cristiano Ronaldo get his foot to connect with Dani Carvajal’s cross?
