Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is “extraordinary” and his heading ability deserves more praise, according to Bayern forward Thomas Müller.
Müller’s Bayern saw the Portuguese forward star against them in the quarter-finals as Ronaldo’s five goals in the tie saw Madrid through.
“Basically we all know that he is extraordinary, in his appearance and with his sporting performances. So he’s already a phenomenon,” Müller said on Wednesday.
“You cannot achieve such numbers of goals for so many years and so often without having to work hard. He has enormous physical and technical qualities, of course.”
“But what impresses me the most are his heading skills. This is sometimes forgotten a bit. He has a fine technique, but he also has mad heading skills.”
