Cristiano Ronaldo: I am the best player in the world

Kaka might be officially the best player in the world but the arrogant Cristiano Ronaldo believes that he is the best player in the business. quotes the 23-year old Manchester United winger as saying that he is convinced that no player in the last 9 or so months has played better football than he has.

Ronaldo says:

I don’t need to demonstrate that I am the No.1 in the world. ver the nine months of the season the work you do will show who really is the best. If I am named the best in the world, it won’t be a surprise to me. I’m 23 now and I never believed I would find myself in such a privileged position in the world of football, playing at the highest level for a club of United’s standing. But now I am fully prepared for the biggest challenges that lie ahead for me as a player. I want to win everything – the Premier League, the Champions League and Euro 2008, because I am very ambitious.

Ronaldo celebrated his 23rd birthday this Tuesday and the Portuguese international is certainly looking in a healthy condition. The former Sporting Lisbon youngster scored 23 goals in all competitions last season and this time he has already racked up an astounding 27. Yet there has to be some reservations on him the best player in the world. He might well be the best in the Premiership but FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and AC Milan’s Kaka are conquering Europe.
