Patrice Evra has hit out at forward Cristiano Ronaldo’s critics, branding them as “jealous” and blind supporters of Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo has been a footballing institution in himself for two decades since making his professional debut back in 2002.
The Portugal captain has lifted a whopping 32 trophies for both club and country.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 700 goals and contributed 222 assists in 943 appearances for Manchester United, Sporting CP, Real Madrid and Juventus.
Speaking to Betfair, Evra labelled Ronaldo as “an alien” in football.
“We have this debate, and some really unfair people, I call them jealous people, criticize him. But he went to Madrid and conquered Spain, and he went to Juventus and conquered Italy. He came back to the Premier League at the age of 36. "
He added: “When you disrespect Cristiano, it’s because you’re jealous or you’re a fan of Messi." I understand that, and it’s not a problem. But he’s unreal. He’s an alien. If we take a spaceship and go to the moon, we’ll maybe see Cristiano there. When we go to sleep, he goes to the moon because he’s an alien. "
