“Cristiano is the best in the history of football. Before him Portugal had not won anything, with him the [2016] European Championship and the Nations League.”

He alluded that his client, who’s presently turning out for Juventus, would have clinched the gong if he was still with Real Madrid.

“The Ballon d’Or? Had he played at Real [Madrid] he would have won it.

“He has transformed world football, in Portugal, at Real Madrid. It’s impossible to compare him to anyone,” Mendes added.
