Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro believes his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in the world.
Casemiro got a rare run out as Madrid beat Schalke 3-1 on Tuesday to record a 9-2 aggregate win in the last 16 of the Champions League.
He told UEFA’s official website that Madrid now need to stay the course and clinch a trophy by the end of the season.
“We played a good game tonight. We have to continue fighting in order to end the campaign as champions,” the Brazilian said.
“We have been through a lot and have learned. We now have a lot more experience and are looking to win a title.
“Cristiano is the best player in the world. He is really something to see and is an example for the younger players.”
