Paris Saint-German Coach Laurent Blanc called Cristiano Ronaldo ‘one of two aliens from planet football’ and previewed Angel Di Maria’s Real Madrid reunion.
Di Maria signed for PSG from Manchester United in the summer, a year after leaving Madrid for United, and Blanc confirmed the Argentine is looking forward to the encounter.
“He is particularly motivated to face Real Madrid. It’s the first time he’s met them since he played there,” Blanc noted, AS reports.
“He had a positive sense at Madrid, and it was there he had his best experiences in Europe. His start to the season has been a middling. He needs time to adapt to his new club and his teammates.”
Blanc moved to discuss Ronaldo and spoke very highly of Madrid’s all-time leading goal scorer.
“He’s one of two aliens from planet football. I love everything about him. He has incredible statistics, he’s good at everything,” Blanc contended.
“Anyone close to him has to be very careful. He’s good with both feet, scores with his head…there’s nobody who doesn’t think he’s one of the best in the world. It’s important that we try not to let him get the ball.”
