TYSON FURY took time out of his busy schedule to praise Cristiano Ronaldo after the Manchester United star was named the Premier League player of the month.
Ronaldo, 36, picked up the award for the fifth time in his career – 13 years after he last won it.
Ronaldo scored three goals in three league games during September to make an immediate impact after arriving at the end of August.
Old Trafford was transformed on his second debut against Newcastle with fans giving him a huge reception on his return.
Under United’s Instagram post sharing the news Fury commented: “CR7 the GOAT.”
While Fury is no doubt a huge fan of Ronaldo, he is determined to replace him as the biggest attraction in Manchester, claiming the city is not big enough for the both of them.
The heavyweight world champion still took time out of his fight preparation to shower praise on CR7 however.
BETTING SPECIAL: GET 30/1 ON FURY OR 50/1 ON WILDER FOR HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING CLASH
Fury will fight Deontay Wilder for the third time on Saturday to defend his WBC title.
Other fans have shared his view on Ronaldo, with others sharing the Goat emoji.
One fan commented: “The GOAT, The King, The Best”
Another added: “He doesn’t chase records, records chase him.”
A third said: “New league no problem.”
