Giorgio Chiellini compares Ronaldo to sports legends

Juventus star Giorgio Chiellini says Cristiano Ronaldo is like Roger Federer and Tiger Woods.

Portugal international has joined Bianconeri last summer for 115 m. It didn’t take much time for him to adapt to Serie A. Currently, Ronaldo is leading league’s race of top scorers with 18 goals.

Chiellini told Football Italia (via Bleacher Report): “Ronaldo? You become a leader. I’m a curious person, I’m a good observer and I like to learn. Having Ronaldo near me, for example, is interesting. He’s like Bolt and Federer: knowing the habits of those who have an extra gear helps. It’s not to imitate him but rather to broaden my horizons.”

Juventus will face Atletico Madrid in Round of 16 of UEFA Champions League.
