Tributes don’t come any bigger or better for Cristiano Ronaldo when the greatest player of all-time singles you out for congratulations.

Cristiano Ronaldo is obviously used to the plaudits and congratulations when it comes to recognition as a great footballer. 

The Portuguese superstar has dominated the top of football’s statistical charts for over a decade. He has even dominated the headlines with his titles, accolades, and achievements.

You will almost always find his name in the mix when the age-old question of who is the best footballer in the world, is brought up for discussion.

However, most of us who embark on such conversations are either fanatical spectators or best players who let us be honest however great have not reached the dizzying heights of CR7.

But there is one man who is probably one of the few truly justified to have a valid opinion.

Pele both scored and arguably out achieved Ronaldo in his career and is considered by many the absolute greatest of all time.

So when such a legend talks football it is an honor and a privilege to listen.

Taking to Instagram he congratulated the Juventus striker on his recent Serie A championship and even went as far as to declare him the best in the world.

He said:

“@Cristiano is the modern athlete, who shows everyone that success always comes to those who are dedicated and love what they do.”

“Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.”

“I think he’s the best because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.”

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the great debate is over, Cristiano Ronaldo is the goat!
