Garth Crooks has praised Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo for his performance in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
According to Crooks, Ronaldo made Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris look ordinary.
Crooks told BBC: “If he had not scored against Spurs, it would have been Ronaldo’s longest league drought in front of goal for 12 years since his first Old Trafford spell. An interesting statistic, but one the Portuguese star shut down within a matter of minutes.
“Ronaldo may be 36, but that has not affected his ability to score goals. Run around maybe, but not score goals.
“His volley against Tottenham that flashed by Hugo Lloris like a meteorite was of the highest order. What a pity a second was ruled offside because that strike was even better. This time Lloris stood motionless and the French World Cup winner was made to look ordinary by a genuine world-class finisher.”
