Football Italian article Ancelotti has admitted that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best striker in Europe and has already given his players the keys to the kitchen.
“The best in Europe,” the former Italy boss told reporters in Istanbul on Tuesday, “that’s for sure.
We’re talking about the best in the world, he is the greatest.”
The Portugal international is on course to become the first player to score in three consecutive Champions League finals as Fenerbache overcame FC Krasnodar in the last 16 to reach the knockout stage.
The match in Istanbul was the first of three games between the two teams in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
“We know that Cristian is the one who is the man to get us through, because he is our hero,” the coach added.
“He’s a special person and is always in the background, but also the one to show us what we can do.
He’s the best.”
The coach was speaking to reporters after the 2-0 win at Besiktas on Sunday.
“I have seen him score in the Champions Leagues,” he said.
“I’m sure that we have more goals in the group than we have scored.”
“Cristian Ronaldo is an absolute legend in the football world.
He is an incredible player, a real star, and we know that in Europe.”
The 25-year-old is already leading the Portugal side with five goals and three assists.
“We have to win against FC Kresno,” he added.
“This is a great team and we’re looking forward to the next match against Krasno.”
