Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo: 'No one is going to be compared with me'

Cristiano Ronaldo could never be described as a shrinking violet.

The Real Madrid star has certainly underlined that in a new video posted on his Instagram account. He again pointed to his time at Manchester United where he became a household name.

Ronaldo, 33, was promoting the Nike Mercurial boot and this is what he had to say... 

"In the beginning I was dreaming to be best player in the world.

"Friends of mine look at me like: 'what are you talking about?' I played for fun, for a joke, but in my mind the potential started in Manchester [United], that's when I started to believe.

"I don't see many people with my talent, dedication, my work, my ethic, my football. No one is going to be compared with me. No one is going to be Cristiano Ronaldo. You're going to be yourself, I'm going to be myself."
