Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for Serie A club Juventus and captains the Portugal national team. He is often considered as the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. The defining virtue of his game is his ability to adapt. Starting from a wide midfielder, he began playing on wings to take advantage of his pace and stepovers. He then started that rare strategy of coming inward, from wings, to get to a striker position, rather than being a traditional Winger. This is why he has better goal figures than even the top strikers.
Ronaldo has adapted his style of play yet again to become more of a free-roaming centre-forward, a role in which he has continued to excel and maintain a prolific goalscoring record; in this position, he has earned praise in the media for his intelligent movement both on and off the ball, his excellent positional sense, link-up play, clinical finishing, and his opportunism, as well as his ability to lose or anticipate his markers, find space in the box, and score from few opportunities. Ronaldo has the best abilities to play as a left-winger and also move inward to play attacking and a more central role as per the need.
An athlete who can adapt according to the need and perform in any circumstance is obviously the best.
