Ex-Real Madrid, Inter Milan and AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf has backed five-time Ballon d’Or recipient Cristiano Ronaldo for a unique Champions League record. The Dutch football legend believes that Ronaldo can make that Champions League record.

Clarence Seedorf has the distinct record of being the only player towin the Champions League trophy with three different clubs and he believes that Juventus hitman Cristiano Ronaldo can also equal that record. Seedorf, 44, won his first Champions League title with Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam during the 1994/95 season before adding another title with Spanish giants Real Madrid during the 1997/98 campaign. He also won the competition twice as an AC Milan player during the 2002/03 and 2006/07 seasons.

Clarence Seedorftalked about Cristiano Ronaldo and the unique Champions League record in one of his recent interviews with Goal. According to the ex-AC Milan and Botafogo manager, Ronaldo can win the Champions League with Juventus and that it won’t be a bad thing for him to match his record.

Juventus paid a lot of money to sign Ronaldo two years ago in a bid to win the Champions League once again. Their last triumph in the competition came during the 1995/96 season. The Old Lady paid €100m for Ronaldo plus €31m in annual wages but he has not been able to deliver the target of a Champions League trophy for the club. Since his arrival, Juventus have struggled in the knockout stages of the competition.

During the 2018/19 campaign, Juventus were eliminated by Ajax Amsterdam in the quarterfinals, while French giants Lyon were responsible for their Champions League exit at the round of 16 stage last season. With Ronaldo facing an uncertain future in Turin, he faces race against time to deliver a Champions League title for the club. He previously won the competition at Manchester United and Real Madrid.
