Moise Kean spent one season with Cristiano Ronaldo before he joined Premier League side Everton last summer.
The Italian youngster scored seven goals in 17 appearances the same season the 35-year-old joined Juventus.
However, in spite of spending just very limited time with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, Kean says the forward is unbelievable on an off the pitch.
According to Goal.com, the Portuguese star was named as the greatest the Italian international has worked with.
“Everyone knows how he is an unbelievable player – he is the best – but you also have to look at the person, and he is a good person. He helped me so much when I was at Juve,” Kean explained to the Toffees’ official website.
Kean, while responding to the question regarding his most difficult opponents, named Paris Saint-Germain duo of Neymar and Angel Di Maria as his toughest opponents..
"There are two who stand out – Neymar and Angel Di Maria. I came up against them when Juventus played PSG and they are both fantastic players,” he said.
The Toffees star also named a couple of memorable moments in his young career, saying: “I have had a few nice moments.
“One was scoring my first goal for Juventus. It was in an away game at Bologna. Scoring my first goal for Everton, in the game against Newcastle, was also a great feeling. I loved celebrating with the Everton fans – I have a great relationship with them.”
Elsewhere, he stated that he has a strong passion for some sports in the US, citing a love of American football and basketball.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo who just won his second Serie A title has reportedly hinted that he will remain at Juventus despite being linked away from the Allianz Arena side.
The 35-year-old has continued to defy age as he has now scored 52 goals in 64 Serie A games since he completed his £88 million move from Real Madrid to Turin in 2018.
He has been linked to several clubs as there are concerns there exists a rift between the Portuguese sensation and manager Maurizio Sarri.
