Portugal legend Luis Figo has revealed who he believes might have been better than Cristiano Ronaldo in front of goals.
Figo was one of the few players who were lucky enough to play with both the Juventus striker and Selecao legend Ronaldo Nazario, but feels the latter was more clinical when it came to scoring.
“It depends, CR7 scores more with his head but both are impressive,” he told DAZN.
“As long as Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t stopped playing, I’ll say that Ronaldo (Nazario) was number one in front of goal, but they’re both players who guarantee you goals.
“The important thing is to put them in the position to score, then they do the rest.”
Despite Ronaldo Nazario being considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, the injuries he suffered throughout his career limited the heights he could have reach, particularly at club level.
According to Transfermarkt, Ronaldo Nazario scored 291 club goals in his career, while Cristiano Ronaldo has found the back of the net 578 times in his club career so far.
