Cristiano Ronaldo has been tipped to have a similar impact on the Serie A as 'El Fenomeno', Ronaldo Nazario, by legendary Italy striker Christian Vieri.
Vieri has heaped praise on the Old Lady's club-record signing that has received criticism over his expected impact due to his advancing age.
"He has arrived in Italy at the age of 33 and they are saying that he's old and won't score the same amount of goals as in recent seasons, but Juve have got the number one," Vieri told DAZN.
The 45-year-old ex-footballer, who played for Inter and Atletico Madrid during his career, sees similarities between 'CR7' and Brazilian legend Ronaldo Nazario, as both footballers could decide a game on their own.
"'El Fenomeno' [Ronaldo Nazario] was lethal in his time at Inter, he scored every single Sunday," Vieri said.
"Cristiano is the same, he has scored more than 600 goals, 50 a season... with his left foot, right foot, it doesn't matter, he is a goal machine."
