Miguel Veloso will face Cristiano Ronaldo this Saturday and had nothing but kind words to say about his Portugal teammate.

Juventus faces Hellas Verona in Serie A this Saturday night and the game will feature a Portuguese reunion. Miguel Veloso and Cristiano Ronaldo both came from Sporting’s academy and played together for Portugal for eight years. Ahead of their Serie A clash, Miguel Veloso gave high praise to his fellow countryman, comparing Ronaldo to the best player in the history of the NBA.

“I have no doubt that Ronaldo will become the top goalscorer in the history of football, said Veloso as per A BOLA. “It will happen for sure. There won’t be another Cristiano in football.

“Mbappe and Haaland are very good and young, but it’s hard to get to the top and even harder to stay there. It won’t be easy for them to achieve Cristiano’s continuity. He’s like [Michael] Jordan, a legend.”

Additionally, Miguel Veloso also confessed he is hoping Juventus will surpass Porto in the Champions League. However, the Portuguese midfielder believes the Bianconeri have a tough task ahead of them.

“My wish is that Ronaldo can conquer the Champions League with Juventus, although I think that this year it’ll be hard. Porto is a strong opponent, the club has his own DNA. I think the Portuguese side will go through [to the next round]. However, no matter who makes it to the quarter-finals, the biggest favorite is still Bayern Munich.”
