Juventus and Portugal’s ace striker Cristiano Ronaldo has reacted to his inclusion in France Football’s All Time XI, saying how honored he felt to be included in a list of the greatest footballers since the history of football.
Cristiano Ronaldo quickly took to Twitter to express his delight, explaining he was “honoured” to be a part of France Football’s All Time XI.
According to the French publications dream team list, Ronaldo was included alongside current Argentina and Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, Brazil’s Pele and Napoli legend Diego Maradona – who passed on last month.
The list also includes three time Ballon d’Or winner and Brazilian great Ronaldo Nazario, Italian legend Paolo Maldini, Xavi, Bayern great Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Brazil’s Cafu and goalkeeping legend Lev Yashin.
In his reaction to his recognition as one of the greatest players of all time, five time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo tweeted: “I am very honored to be a part of France Football’s All Time XI.”
“What an amazing Dream Team… They all deserve my respect and admiration and I’m obviously proud to be amongst such extraordinary players. Thank you!”
Cristiano Ronaldo holds a lot of records in what has been a glistening career since he left the shores of Portugal for Manchester United in 2003.
The Portuguese marksman is Real Madrid’s record highest goalscorer, has won five Champions League titles, three Premier League titles, European Championship trophy (2016), two Serie A trophies and many more LaLiga accolades to add to his impressive haul of personal trophies.
Ronaldo recently celebrated his 100th Juventus appearance by scoring twice in Sunday’s 3-1 Serie A triumph over a struggling Genoa side.
Apart from making his 100th appearance for the Turin giants, the former Real Madrid man also became the first player in history to amass 400 wins across Europe’s top five leagues this century.
Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored an amazing 77 goals in just 100 appearances for Juve, and became only the third Juventus player to reach 31 goals in a calendar year in the Series A top flight, a record which has stood since 1961.
The Italian defending champions welcome Atalanta in the Series A on Wednesday, with Ronaldo looking to add to his 10 league goals this season.
