Asked which of the Champions League goals he likes, the Frenchman says the Ronaldo bicycle kick vs Juventus in Turin is the best.
"I think Ronaldo's goal against Buffon is the best. I had the chance to play with Gigi and we talked about that goal and how it felt, so I think I'll stick with that one."
