Ruud van Nistelrooy says Brazilian great Ronaldo is the best player he ever played with during his career.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker played alongside Ronaldo at the Bernabeu in the 2006-07 season, with Ronaldo joining AC Milan in the January transfer window, few months after Van Nistelrooy's joined Los Blancos from United.
However, the Dutchman heaped praise on Ronaldo, adding the 40-year-old had unique skills.
"The best player I ever played with was at Real Madrid," Van Nistelrooy said. "Ronaldo Fenomeno, Brazil.
"Fantastic player. What special skills he had and especially the kind of guy he is too so, for me, the best ever."
