Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus superstar is on different level to others claims manager Massimiliano Allegri


Ronaldo made his Champions League debut for Manchester United 16 years ago but failed to break his duck in four seasons until he bagged a brace in the famous 7-1 thrashing over AS Roma.

Twelve years on, he became the first player to reach the 125-goal mark with his thumping header against AFC Ajax in their 1-1 first-leg draw in Amsterdam within the quarter-final tie.

"Ronaldo showed that he is on a different level. His timing and movement is different to everyone else's - there's nothing you can do about it," Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.

"He is a player who just has a different technique than the others."

The 34-year-old has scored five goals and registered two assists in eight games in the competition this season.
