Gary Neville feels Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has transformed the role of the game's best attacking players.

Neville described how former Manchester United man Ronaldo was the first player he featured alongside who used his versatility to break down the opposition.

He told the London Evening Standard: “Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player I played with that almost had the license to be able to roam and what he was doing was searching out the weakness in the opposition team – making sure that our best player, our most impactful player had the ball in the most dangerous position against their weakness the most often.”
