Cristiano Ronaldo from the Madeira Island … seeks to be the best of the best (ever) in the world of soccer / football.
“Cristiano at 22 has definitely got to the level of the best player in the world. Thereafter it will be up to the people and coaches around the world to decide if he is as good as Maradona or Pele, but that has got to be the challenge for him now. That has to be his goal.”
The English newspaper The Independent published an article about the young star where they answer the question: Is he the best since Best?
The boy from the hillside overlooking Funchal on the Madeira Islands is still a bit of a mystery to the English public. He does not do many interviews, apart from the occasional tightly controlled magazine number which his manager, Sir Alex Ferguson approves, and he has a reputation for being a touch standoffish, perhaps a legacy of the child prodigy years. Ronaldo’s background tells you much about the man, but first to the most immediate question: can he legitimately be called the greatest footballer now playing in the world?
