Senegal international Ismaila Sarr has named Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player in the world.
Sarr, who is on the books of English side Watford, praised the Portugal and Juventus superstar as a goalscoring machine.
The speedy attacker also picked his compatriot Sadio Mane of Liverpool FC and Brazil, and Paris Saint Germain (PSG) star Neymar as the players he has played against.
“Cristiano Ronaldo. I haven’t seen him play live, but I really want to. He’s the best in the world. He plays well, he scores goals that are like works of art,” Sarr told the club’s official website.
“I’ve played against Mane and he is strong. But I have played against Neymar and I’d choose him because he is so strong in every aspect of the game, except he doesn’t defend.”
The 22-year-old player went on to select Senegal internationals Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli, Idrissa Gueye of PSG and Mane as the best players he has ever played with.
“There are many. Can I name a few? So there is Sadio [Mane], Idrissa Gueye and [Kalidou] Koulibaly,” he added.
“These players have everything. I chose them because there you have the best defender, the best midfielder and the best forward I’ve played with.”
