When thinking about something that Cristiano Ronaldo might do on a football pitch, predictability is not always something that will be associated with the Portuguese superstar.

Indeed, arguably the greatest of all time – unless you are firmly part of the Lionel Messi side of the argument – Ronaldo has always had the unique ability to do something outrageous and at times unexpected when with the ball.

His ability on the pitch, whether it has been for Juventus, Real Madrid or Manchester United throughout his career, has made him a popular individual to bet on when punters find the best sites to wager with after visiting sportfogadas.net, but what he has recently said will have been so predictable that it would not have even been worth betting on.

Having been unveiled as LiveScore’s Official Global Brand Ambassador, the Portuguese superstar was asked who he believes will be the next best footballer in the world once he and Messi were to retire and, predictably, he named the two most obvious candidates possible.

“It is hard to choose just one player to say this one will be the best, but I think it is exciting to see this new generation of young players, like Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappé, who are coming through.

“Some players can have one or two great seasons, the really great players are the ones that keep doing it season after season, and that is not so easy to do. It takes a lot of hard work, and a lot of commitment.”

Of course, Haaland and Mbappé’s names being mentioned is not a surprise, with many having already witnessed just how good the duo are.

Haaland has been sensational over the last few years of his career, as he has been able to find the back of the net as consistently as one could ever hope to be, whilst Mbappé has continued to impress at Paris Saint-Germain.

Both players have been linked with moves away from their respective clubs in recent transfer talk, although there will be suggestions that they should remain where they are for the time being to continue to perfect their craft a little further.

However, if the duo are to be able to be put in the same breath as either Ronaldo or Messi in the future – perhaps at the end of their own respective careers – then they are going to need to work hard and get started pretty quickly as the legendary duo managed to obtain 11 Ballon d’Ors in 12 years between them.
