I will tell my children I played alongside Ronaldo - Morata

Morata is proud to play alongside Ronaldo for several seasons.

Juventus striker Alvaro Morata praised Cristiano Ronaldo, calling him one of the best players in history.

Ronaldo, who has won the Ballon d'Or five times so far, has scored 19 goals in 18 games in his third season at

Juventus

. Morata, who is currently on loan from Atletico to Juventus, has so far recorded 4 goals and 4 assists in 12 games. The two were also teammates at

Real Madrid

for several seasons, and Morata now claims to be proud to play alongside Ronaldo.

"It's easy to play with him,"

he told Sky Sport Italia.

"I've known him for some time. On some occasions when a normal person wouldn't score, he scores. 

"In Parma I gave him an assist that only he could see and understand. I understand his movements and what he likes to do. 

"I often take his men away by moving, and I think it helps him not to always have two or three players around him. It's a pleasure to play with him.

"He is still one of the best in football history. He's great, has incredible quality and he can play wherever he wants, whether it is as a number nine, 10 or 11. 

"I can only enjoy it every day, and I hope to support him for a long time to come.

"It's a pride for me. I grew up watching him and when I got here thinking about playing with him and [Paulo] Dybala thrilled me. 

"They are players of a higher level. We have an excellent relationship even off the pitch. I will tell my children that I played with them."
