‘ What he did is extraordinary ‘ – Lionel Messi’s former manager hails Cristiano Ronaldo

At 39 years old, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to amaze football fans and pundits alike with his remarkable performances on the field.

Recently, the Portuguese superstar received high praise from former Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier following an impressive display against Galtier’s current team, Al-Duhail, in the AFC Champions League.

In a closely contested group-stage encounter, Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr emerged victorious with a thrilling 4-3 win over Galtier’s side. Despite the defeat, Galtier couldn’t help but express his admiration for Ronaldo’s standout performance, particularly highlighting his two stunning goals.

“He scored two beautiful goals. I’m at a loss for words to describe him,” Galtier remarked in his post-match comments, as reported by Sportskeeda. “What he did is extraordinary for a 39-year-old. He’s still the best player in the world.”

Ronaldo, who made a lucrative move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr in January 2023, has defied expectations and continued to showcase his exceptional talent and goal-scoring ability even as he enters the twilight of his career.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s long-standing rival, Lionel Messi, has also been enjoying a spell of fine form with his club, Inter Miami, sparking renewed discussions about the ongoing debate over who deserves the title of the greatest player of their generation.

However, Galtier’s glowing praise for Ronaldo’s performance against his team serves as a testament to the enduring brilliance of the 39-year-old football icon. Despite his age, Ronaldo continues to captivate and impress, proving that his talent knows no bounds and transcends generations.
