Ibrahimović: "For me, Ronaldo is the greatest. He was as [good as] Pelé. There was nobody like him. No-one has influenced both football and the players who emerged as Ronaldo."
Zinedine Zidane: "Without hesitation, Ronaldo is the best player I ever played with. He had such an ease with the ball. He is number one. Every day I trained with him, I saw something different, something new, something beautiful. That's what makes the difference between a very good player, and the exception."
Lionel Messi: "Ronaldo was my hero. I loved seeing players like Zidane, Ronaldinho and Rivaldo, but Ronaldo is the best striker I've ever seen. I've never seen anyone hit a ball like him."
