Atalanta midfielder Ruslan Malinovsky believes that Cristiano Ronaldo is not the best player in Serie A, and insisted that Luis Muriel could play at Barcelona.
“I will not reveal who is the best player in Italy, I believe that there is more than one player better than Ronaldo,” the Ukrainian said through the Вацко Live account on YouTube.
“I would say that Luis Muriel is the best I’ve played with, and he’s a great player,” he explained.
“If things went differently, he could play in the Barcelona shirt, and it’s hard to understand how that didn’t happen.”
“Maybe it depends on his personality, but Muriel represents the spirit of the dressing room, he is always smiling.”
The 30-year-old Colombian scored 22 goals and assisted 9 in the Italian league in 36 matches, including 20 as a substitute.
While Ronaldo won the Serie A top scorer award by scoring 27 goals in a Juventus shirt and crowned the Super Cup against Napoli and the Italian Cup against Atalanta.
