Al-Ettifaq manager Steven Gerrard has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as “The GOAT”.
Gerrard joined up with Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian Pro League in July.
During Ronaldo’s first spell with Manchester United, he enjoyed a fierce rivalry with Gerrard who was Liverpool’s captain at the time.
“The arrival of ‘The GOAT’ as we call him, Cristiano (Ronaldo), him arriving in January obviously (was) a huge signing,” Gerrard said in an interview with the Saudi Pro League.
“He still had a lot of football to offer. So, from afar, for six months, I was looking in at Cristiano Ronaldo’s results, at the league, watching some games and watching some highlights.
“I think from that moment, the league around the world had become a very popular talking point for everyone. After Cristiano’s arrival, even more big-name signings, talents and skill sets were joining the league.”
