“Also, I would like to congratulate my fellow Brazilians @douglascosta, @alxsndro12 and @daniluiz2. Great work winning the @seriea title, @juventus.”

Pele has never hidden his admiration for Ronaldo on a regular basis down the years. The three-time World Cup winner had placed the Juve forward at the top of the global game.

“Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I think he’s the best, because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker,” he said in one of his interviews.

Although the crown is in the bag, before resuming Champions League duty, Juve will be playing their two remaining domestic games this season.
