He's the defender that was named by Cristiano Ronaldo as his toughest opponent.

Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro GOIH ComM (Portuguese pronunciation born 5 February 1985) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and captains the Portugal national team. Often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Ronaldo has won five Ballon d'Or awards and four European Golden Shoes, the most by a European player.

Cristiano Ronaldo is widely regarded as one of the best players to have ever played the game of football, having earned a record-breaking five Ballon d'Or awards throughout his distinguished professional career.

A striker for Manchester United, he also acts as the club's captain for the Portugal national team, a position he has held since 2011. Portuguese national team beat Qatar 3-1 in an international friendly on Saturday, with the hosts responding with a goal of their own.

When he returned to action for Manchester United, he scored a brace in a 4-1 win against Newcastle, which was his first appearance after being sidelined by injury. As a result of the injury to Wayne Rooney, Ronaldo scored for Manchester United in their first UCL group encounter against Young Boys, in which the Red Devils were down to 10 men.

After taking part in a question and answer session hosted by the Sport Bible sports website, Ronaldo said that Ashley Cole has been the most tough opponent he has ever faced in his illustrious professional football career.

When Ronaldo and Cole faced off against each other numerous times throughout their respective careers in the English Premier League, the United Champions League, and international matches, Ronaldo referred to Cole as "one of football's most brilliant defenders of all time."

Cristiano refused to choose his most difficult opponent from among those who are currently participating, instead insisting on selecting retired players as his most difficult opponents.
