Ahead of Tottenham’s clash against Real Madrid, Hugo Lloris has described Ronaldo as an inspiration and a machine of success.
The France international goalkeeper will have to keep out the Portuguese and his teammates on Tuesday evening in the UCL.
Ronaldo will prove to be a piece of work for Lloris, having led Madrid to the UCL title three times in the last four years.
“He is an inspiration for the new generation, a machine of success with individual trophies and collective success,” Lloris said of the 32-year-old forward.
“He is a great leader and a great personality too. He has made a great impact on Real Madrid and the success of Real Madrid.
“To have the opportunity to play for the best club in the world gives you the opportunity to play against the best players in the world.”
