Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney heaped praise on his former club-mate Cristiano Ronaldo stating that the Real Madrid forward is a special footballer and one of the best in the world.

"I'd say there are two that stand out and they're Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo. Paul Scholes is one of the best midfielders of all time. His passing, vision and the way he controlled the tempo of games was incredible,” Rooney told Man United's official website.

“Cristiano is a special player and he has gone on to be one of the best in the world. Some of the things he used to do in training and then take into games was unbelievable, he'll always be remembered as one of the greats of the game.”

Rooney has been in a reminiscing mood in recent weeks as he gets ready for his testimonial game against former club Everton on Wednesday.
