Ronaldo and Sir Alex Ferguson share touching moment after CL final

Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible two goal performance in the Champions League final further confirms that he’s the best player in the world right now. 

Ronaldo was simply unstoppable in Real Madrid’s 4-1 victory against Juventus. What’s more unreal, is that he’s getting better with age like a fine wine. The Portuguese forward is a far more intelligent player than before, finding all the right positions for both his goals. He’s now scored 108 Champions League goals, an incredible achievement.

The man behind his discovery and rise to success is none other than former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Even at 32 years old, Ronaldo still calls Ferguson boss, an ultimate sign of respect for his life long mentor.

Ferguson handed Ronaldo the man of the match award, as the pair celebrated Real Madrid’s back to back Champions League trophies.

There’s no denying Ronaldo has received his fair share of criticism from haters and even his own fans over the years. The Messi Ronaldo debate feels to have dragged on for centuries, although he’s well and truly silenced his critics after today.

“What is important is that I did again, an amazing season, me and my team-mates won the double,” said Ronaldo.  

“I think the people don’t have words to criticize because the numbers don’t lie.

I’m very happy, it’s one of the best moments in my career. I seem to say that every year. My head is just a number. I feel like a young boy.”
