Maradona: Juventus star Ronaldo an animal and sorcerer

Diego Maradona hailed Cristiano Ronaldo after his wonder performance for Juventus in their Champions League win over Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo hit a hat-trick to fire Juve into the quarterfinals 3-2 on aggregate.

“There are players who are touched by a magic wand," Maradona was quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport.

“The truth is that us Argentines are proud Messi is Argentine and didn't play for Spain, but the other is an animal.

“Ronaldo is pure power and now he's a sorcerer too because he said he would score three goals and did."
