The Al-Nassr star has failed to score so far at the Euros this summer

Manchester United legend Ferguson has admitted that he thinks Ronaldo would struggle to make an impact at the World Cup because of the growing demand it has on his body.

When asked if he expects to see Ronaldo at the tournament, Ferguson told SportBild: “I can’t imagine that. Football will become even faster and more athletic in the coming years.

“In addition, the space for central strikers will become increasingly smaller.

“In contrast to defenders, it is more difficult for strikers to play at the highest level when they are older.”

But Ferguson who shaped Ronaldo into the superstar he is at United considered the Al-Nassr star “one of the greatest players of all time.”

And the Scotsman said the Portugal legend has nothing more to prove.

He added: “One or two more titles would not mean much to him, because he has had a unique career.”

The Euros have not been an easy competition for Ronaldo who has screamed, cried and failed to score.
