Sir Alex Ferguson is considered to be the discoverer of Cristiano Ronaldo, or at least one of the people who has had most influence on the Portuguese forward's career. The now retired Manchester United manager, who signed the now Real Madrid player when he was still just a promising youngster, explained what he considers to be the big difference between his former protegé and Leo Messi. "It's interesting to me that we hear so much about two players these days: Ronaldo and Messi", said the former coach. "Now don’t get me wrong, Messi is a fantastic player, it’s like he’s wearing slippers when he controls the ball. But here, for me, is the difference. Messi is a Barcelona player. But Ronaldo could play for Stockport County [who play in the English National League North, the sixth tier] and score a hat-trick. He has everything. He can shoot with both feet, head the ball, he’s as brave as a lion, and here’s something else people overlook."

Ferguson also praised once again Cristiano Ronaldo's professionalism and work rate: "During my time at Manchester United I was lucky enough to have a lot of people who put in countless extra hours to get better. Gary Neville Gary Neville turned himself from an average footballer into a wonderful one because of his work ethic, as did David Beckham, but Cristiano Ronaldo used to completely exhaust himself, and still does. He just wanted to be the best in the world.”
