Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world and he thinks it is very much unlikely there will ever be a player with exactly the same characteristics.
“No one can be the next Cristiano Ronaldo,” Ronaldo told Marca.
“There are no doubles in football. The next will be what he has to be, but never the same. That does not happen.
“I see many young talents in Europe like Renato Sanches, Andres Gomes, or Joao Mario. There are many to choose from. I have only mentioned the Portuguese, but there are many in Europe who have the capacity to go far.
“I am very happy because these great talents assure that football will always be strong.”
