Franco Baresi is a club legend and a former Milan captain. He jokingly spoke about Ronaldo’s ability, saying:

“Cristiano Ronaldo? I’m lucky that I retired before he came along. We know how good he is at always being in the right spot.

“He often goes into the box without the ball and he is very difficult to mark. You have to try and limit him,” he said, as quoted by Calciomercato.
