Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has named the Italian Serie A, as the hardest league, he has played in.
Ronaldo has spent the majority of his career playing at the highest level in England and Spain.
Before Juve, the Portugal captain spent nine years at Real Madrid, where he won two La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.
Before his time in Spain, he earned legendary status at Manchester United by scoring 118 goals in 292 games and helping the Old Trafford giants clinch three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Yet Ronaldo, who has 21 goals already this campaign, has been pleasantly surprised by the quality on show in Serie A.
He told Dazn: “I’ve adapted to the Italian League and it’s a difficult League, the most difficult one for me and for all forwards.
“It’s the most difficult league for me, it’s full of quality players. I didn’t expect this much quality in the Italian League, they’re very good.
“It’s harder to score in the Italian League than in the Spanish League.
“The Spanish League is more open, the teams risk more. Here, not so much. Here, the team’s priority is to defend first, and then to attack.
“That’s not true for Spain. Spanish games are more open. Always, with most teams.
“I don’t miss Spain or Portugal, it is what it is. Obviously, I left many friends and a great team behind, a team that made me feel loved, people, friends.
“But I don’t miss the country, I have the same things here. It wasn’t really difficult for me.
