Ronaldo compared Stefano and Charlton

"It was a special moment, to meet one of most mythical persons of the club, it was a privilege, it was like meeting Bobby Charlton when I first joined Manchester United, it was a pleasure to meet all those mythical people, like Eusebio, who wished me luck. It was one of the most beautiful moments of my life."

Ronaldo's reaction on difference between the Premier League and La Liga:-

"I expect La Liga to be different. I played six years in the Premier League and it is very different from the Spanish League. It's faster and the players are stronger, but La Liga is also very competitive, small teams try to play good football. It has nice players, good teams, it will be interesting and I look forward to enjoying La Liga. In England there are very nice referees but in La Liga you have unbelievable referees.
