Cristiano Ronaldo has developed into the “perfect” player at Real Madrid, Michael Owen says, but he has Manchester United to thank for it instead of the Spanish side.

The 32-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best players the game has ever seen, and ex-Madrid and United forward Owen feels Sir Alex Ferguson had a big role in his development during their six years together at Old Trafford.

“He was absolutely off the scale in how he was performing at United,” Owen said. “So I don’t think Real Madrid can take the credit at all because United and Sir Alex Ferguson groomed him in that way and he continued to progress at Real.

“Ronaldo had a couple of out-of-this-world seasons at United at the end and has not stopped improving. He is a one-off, he really is. Ronaldo and Messi have taken football to a new level for so long as well, consistently ­being top of the tree.”
