Rosenberg praises ‘fantastic’ Cristiano Ronaldo


Malmo captain Markus Rosenberg has praised Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the teams’ showdown in the Champions League, saying he will be more difficult to face than Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swedish outfit came up against the former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker on match day one of this season’s competition and he had plenty of chances throughout the game.

But speaking to the media ahead of Real’s visit, Rosenberg said coming up against Ronaldo posed an even bigger threat because of the 30-year-old’s speed and strength.

Ronaldo has netted eight times in all competitions for his club this season. However, those goals have come in just two games – he scored five against Espanyol and followed that up with a hat trick against Shakhtar Donesk.

Rosenberg stated:”Together with Messi, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are the three best in the world. They have their differences, but I think maybe Cristiano is the most difficult to stop for us.

“He plays at an incredible speed. If you look at the PSG match from the first round, Zlatan had a lot of chances, but I think Cristiano will give us more problems. Ronaldo is probably worth 92 Rosenbergs, at least that much. If we’re talking about wages, then probably even more. If we’re talking about speed, not so much. But seriously, he’s a fantastic player, he’s scored 300-odd goals for Madrid. He’s an incredible forward.”
