"Only those who do not want to see it must recognise Ronaldo as the best player in the world," he explained. "He is playing at the highest level, is scoring goals so amazing and I've not seen anyone doing something like that.
"It is logical that, at this present time, he is already the best player in the world.
"Myself, I have been here for only eight months but I am much more developed on various levels.
"I have grown up a lot in the mental aspect, which is fundamental to evolve in this way, but I am also developed physically and technically.
"I have the awareness that, at the moment, I am a key player for the team.
"And that makes me feel good."
