Luís Figo Asked Who He Would Choose Out Of Cristiano Or Ronaldo Luís Nazário
Luís Figo has found himself presented with an interesting question: Cristiano Ronaldo or Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima?
That's right, the former Barcelona star enjoyed time on the pitch with both players. He played alongside Cristiano with the Portugal national team and Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
So, who did the 45-year-old ultimately choose?
"It depends, CR7 scores more with his head, but both are impressive," he told DAZN (via Football Italia).
"As long as Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't stopped playing, I'll say that Ronaldo was number one in front of goal, but they're both players who guarantee you goals.
"The important thing is to put them in the position to score, then they do the rest..."
It is not the first time that a debate between the two has arisen.
In fact, former Inter Milan coach Luigi Simoni told SportNews (via Soccer Laduma) last month that the 42-year-old former striker was "much more complete, more unpredictable."
He added: "They're two different players. Cristiano is a good player, but 'il Fenomeno' was something else."
"Some players needed others to become great. Cristiano Ronaldo just needs a ball."#CR7JUVE #CR7 pic.twitter.com/Fqi9X2NBcv

Neymar Jr - "As for Cristiano Ronaldo , he is a monster. Facing him is a pleasure and an honor, but we have to be more prepared. He is one of the greatest in football so you get smarter, you get alert, but at the same time you learn a lot, too." pic.twitter.com/zDhgxkXown
