Frank Lampard has shared that Cristiano Ronaldo makes abnormal things seem normal as he hails the Portuguese for superb show against Everton
Manchester United came from behind to beat Everton 2-1 on Sunday with Cristiano Ronaldo netting the last goal of the game.
The Portuguese saw his tallies hit to 700 after converting a fine assist from Casemiro who beat Alex Iwobi in a tussle at the midfield to win the ball.
It is his first after a long time this season and in celebrating the goal, Ronaldo displayed a new celebration which symbolize peace of mind.
Speaking after the game, Everton manager hailed Cristiano Ronaldo as he claims the Portuguese is as good as Lionel Messi but still believes both are in the leagues of their own.
“It is just outstanding, isn’t it?” Lampard said. “He’s one of the greatest players that has graced the game in an era when we have had himself and Messi. The comparison doesn’t matter, they are just both incredible players in football’s history.”
“To be going and look as physically good as he [Ronaldo] looks, to keep scoring goals as he’s done, the numbers he has racked up have become normal, abnormal numbers become normal year after year, looking after himself in the right way.
“When he [Ronaldo] was on 699, I wanted him to score in the Europa League the other night because you could feel might come at the weekend and then he comes on, because Martial’s got a problem. Sometimes those things happen in football.”
