The forward scored a hat-trick in his last Champions League outing and his opponents on Wednesday have been quick to highlight the threat he will pose
Markus Rosenberg has revealed Malmo fear Cristiano Ronaldo even more than Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League encounter with Real Madrid.
The Swedish champions were beaten 2-0 by Ibrahimovic’s PSG on matchday one, but Rosenberg thinks Ronaldo could cause them even more trouble.
“Together with Messi, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic are the three best in the world. They have their differences, but I think maybe Cristiano is the most difficult to stop for us,” the Malmo forward told AS.
“He plays at an incredible speed. If you look at the PSG match from the first round, Zlatan had a lot of chances, but I think Cristiano will give us more problems.
“Ronaldo is probably worth 92 Rosenbergs, at least that much. If we’re talking about wages, then probably even more.
“He’s a fantastic player, he’s scored 300-odd goals for Madrid. He’s an incredible forward.”
Ronaldo has netted eight times in seven appearances in all competitions this campaign, but all his goals have come from just two games.
He scored five times against Espanyol before hitting a hat-trick versus Shakhtar Donetsk.
