Arsenal icon Thierry Henry has picked Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo as the finest striker in the UEFA Champions League, according to the Metro.
Ronaldo, a five-time winner of the competition, has been one of Europe's most recognizable faces for more than a decade. His appetite hasn't waned with age, and he'll be gunning for number six this season.
Despite United's inability to hit all of their targets, Ronaldo has had a fantastic start to his second spell at the club. So far, he has five goals in five outings for United, including our Champions League second match against Villarreal of Spain.
It was the 36-year-136th old's strike in the tournament, propelling him to the top of the all-time scorers record. Henry is correct in his assessment that the player's track record speaks for itself and demonstrates his position in the sport.
Why do you have to give this guy so much credit? Because of what he's done for the national team and what he's doing for United right now.”
Few players in international football are more lethal in the penalty area than Ronaldo, a frequent scorer for both club and country. His status as one of the greatest players in the game's history is undeniable.
He's in a class by himself!
Henry goes on to say that Ronaldo's achievements during his career are unparalleled. He has elevated goal-scoring to an art form and is deserving of all the praise he receives.
“If we're talking about a No.9, you have to recognize what he's done for Juventus, Real Madrid, and Manchester United in the past.”
While athletes sometimes have purple patches, Ronaldo stands out for his consistency. He has led the goalscoring charts in all three major leagues, including the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A.
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has voted Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United as the finest striker in the UEFA Champions League.
Henry is one of the best strikers of his time and an expert on what it takes to score goals at the highest level. His admiration for Ronaldo serves as a reminder of just how far the United ace has come in his illustrious career.
