Few hours after the controversial Nike advert, when Cristiano Ronaldo rated himself above Lionel Messi stating that there is nobody in the world with his ‘talent, dedication or work ethic’ and insisted no-one can be compared with him, he did another magic against Girona scoring four goals in just one match.

Friends of mine, they look at me like, “what are you talking about?” I played for fun, for a joke, but in my mind I think that potential started in Manchester, that’s when I started to believe.
