In his reaction to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Champions League’s hat trick against Atletico Madrid, Argentinian football legend, Diego Maradona has described the football star a scorer with pure power.
After the game which saw the Portuguese’s player scoring a hat-trick which helped erase a 2-0 loss they suffered at Madrid, Maradona said Ronaldo is a sorcerer.
Maradona also weigh-in on Ronaldo’s comparison with Barcelona star, Lionel Messi. He said there are players who have been touched by a magic wand, and Argentines are proud that Lionel Messi is Argentinian.
“The other one is an animal. Ronaldo is pure power, and now he’s also a sorcerer. He said he’d score three goals and he scored three goals.” Maradona was quoted.
However, Ronaldo netted his eighth Champions League hat-trick to draw level with Messi.
Ronaldo’s goals on the night also extended his record tally to 124 goals in 160 matches. The Portuguese has scored 63 times in the knockout stages.
