Hellas Verona and Juventus are set to do battle on Saturday evening in Serie A, meaning that it will be a meeting between Portugal teammates Miguel Veloso and Cristiano Ronaldo, and the former has labelled Cristiano as being Michael Jordan-esque.
Cristiano's goalscoring exploits have followed him to Turin, but he has been unable to rescue a disappointing season under Andrea Pirlo this term, with Inter sitting comfortably atop the table.
"I have no doubt that Cristiano is the best forward of all time," there won't ever be another like him," Veloso explained to Tuttosport.
"He's like Michael Jordan, a legend. Nobody has the continuity he does.
"[Kylian] Mbappe and [Erling] Haaland are very strong and young, but if reaching the top is very difficult, staying there is even more so."
