Real Madrid legend Figo rates Eusebio ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid legend Luis Figo rates Eusebio ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speaking with AS, Figo was asked about Portugal's greatest.

“I never saw him play. But for everything he stands for, for the love he showed me, his friendship and his advice, I'd put Eusebio at number one.

"Everyone will say that I say that for this reason or that reason but ultimately it's just about respect. Everyone makes history in their own time."

On Ronaldo, Figo added: “I admire him and I enjoy seeing his achievements. He just gets better every year. He's making football history."
