Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been going gaga over Cristiano Ronaldo and his ability so score goals freely.

The Red Devils will be facing Italian club Juventus in Turin in the return leg of their Group H encounter of the UEFA Champions League.

The previous leg saw the Mancunians lose 0-1 on their home turf, and the Portuguese forward impressed upon his return to Old Trafford, as he set Paulo Dybala up for the only goal of the match.

Pogba has gone on to joke about Ronaldo’s ability, saying the Juventus star “scores as easily as he drinks water”. The 33-year-old has made a fine start to his Juve career, netting seven goals in 13 games in all competitions, whilst also bagging 6 assists.
