Former AC Milan midfielder, Rui Costa believes Cristiano Ronaldo will still be relevant 300 years from now.
The 35-year-old has broken some records while setting new ones since he joined the Old Lady from Real Madrid in 2018.
He has won the Italian League title twice - just like he did with his previous clubs but he doesn't seem like he is done chasing laurels.
The 48-year-old former Portugal international claims apart from winning the title, Ronaldo is also aiming to become the league's top scorer.
Costa who played along with the five-time Ballon d'Or at the national team level added that Andrea Pirlo is the right manager for his compatriot. He said:
"In 300 years from now, Ronaldo will still be talked about. "He is unique. He keeps the same level in different teams, in different championships and in the national team.
"He is 35, he has won everything several times. "When he has a goal he doesn't rest.
"And knowing him as I know him, I am convinced that he, besides the 'Scudetto', wants to be also to be the top scorer in the league."
Despite winning the Serie A title for Maurizio Sarri, Ronaldo's relationship with the former Napoli boss was not all that cordial.
Rui Costa believes Juve made the right choice appointing Pirlo as Sarri's replacement, saying he knows exactly what it means to win.
"Andrea was a champion and he knows perfectly how great players think, he knows what strikers need to shine on the pitch.
"Pirlo as a player was phenomenal serving strikers and that's why he has this advantage in his relationship with Cristiano.
"Then, contrary to what many may think, two champions like Cristiano and Pirlo solve problems and don't create them. They are two football geniuses.
"I am convinced that Ronaldo will work well with him, as it worked with Zidane, like Andrea, he also knows exactly what strikers need."
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has continued to add more goalscoring records to his name after helping Juventus earn a 2-2 draw against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.
The Portuguese superstar scored in each half of the game and helped Juventus come back twice to earn a draw with ten men.
The 35-year-old is now the first person to score 450 league goals across the top five leagues in Europe.
