‘Can never be compared’ – Former Marseille defender Hiroki Sakai is full of admiration for Al Nassr star Cristiano Ronaldo

May 7, 2023

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is being praised by former Marseille defender Hiroki Sakai as the 33-year-old Japanese footballer believes that Ronaldo is incomparable.

Even at 38, Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo is living the football dream. The star striker is still the highest-paid sportsman in the world and still holds most soccer records along with his rival Lionel Messi.

He is currently playing in one of the biggest Asian footballing leagues Saudi PL where he is bagging goals left and right. 

Former Marseille defender Hiroki Sakai who now plays for Urawa Reds recently spoke out about his admiration for the former Manchester United striker. Sakai was recently part of the Urawa Reds side who defeated Al Nassr’s rival Al Hilal for the Asian Champions League title.

While speaking to the Arabic sports outlet Kooora, Hiroki Sakai said that the 5 times Ballon d’Or winner should not be compared with anybody as he is still ‘the best player in the world’.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world and can never be compared, but I have not had the opportunity to face him,” 

Sakai also presented his desire to face the football legend in the future.

“Perhaps I will have that opportunity in the future in the AFC Champions League.”

Hiroki Sakai and Cristiano Ronaldo could indeed face each other if Al Nassr wins the league which is starting to look very unlikely.

But even before that, Cristiano Ronaldo would have to stay in the league as it’s been reported that the striker is done with Saudi PL and want to return to Europe.

Premier League club Newcastle United and Erdevisie club Ajax are being linked with Cristiano Ronaldo although a response from these clubs is also unlikely.
