Cristiano Ronaldo showed his amazing performance during a recent AFC Champions League match that took place between Al-Nassr and Al-Duhail.

As the 39-year-old led his team to a hard-fought 4-3 victory over Christophe Galtier’s Al-Duhail, the Portuguese player’s impact was undeniable despite his advancing age.

After the match, the current manager of Al-Duhail and former coach of Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Christophe Galtier expressed his admiration for Ronaldo's performance.

Galtier specifically highlighted the Al-Nassr player’s two stunning goals and went on to talk about skill and prowess.

"He scored two beautiful goals. I’m at a loss for words to describe him," Galtier said in his post-match comments according to Sportskeeda.

"What he did is extraordinary for a 38-year-old. He’s still the best player in the world," the manager added.

Reaffirming Cristiano Ronaldo’s status as one of football’s all-time greats, Galtier’s comments underscored his ability to captivate and impress even the most seasoned coaches.

Ronaldo’s performances continue to draw global attention and fuel debates about his place among the greatest players of his generation despite him playing in the Middle East for Al-Nassr since January 2023.
