Ronaldo had a great performance on his return to Manchester United, scoring four goals in three games.

Former

Manchester United

star Paul Scholes believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is at the highest level among Manchester United legends, and even Cantona has to admit that he is one step lower than Ronaldo.

During his time at Manchester United, the Frenchman Cantona played an important role in the team's success and the start of consecutive championships and is very popular among the club's fans. Ronaldo has played a similar role at Manchester United and has had numerous successes with the team. However, Scholes believes that Ronaldo is even higher than Cantona.

He told 

Premier League Productions

"Eric was very similar but Cristiano was still on another level from that. Eric did go out and practice but he wasn’t so much a gym person.

"Cristiano did all of his practicing before and after training and also made sure he was stronger for the Premier League by going into the gym afterwards.

"I’ve never seen a more professional person.

"He was out there all day long, practicing those free kicks, his speed, he was sprinting up hills, he had weights on his ankles.

"He was doing everything that the likes of the British players hadn’t seen. That wasn’t it, he was in the gym afterwards, just doing everything to prepare himself."
