In a media conference made in London, in a Nike event, Luis Figo praised his portuguese compatriot, Cristiano Ronaldo, for his tremendous season in Real Madrid.
The portuguese legend Figo, then said: "Cristiano Ronaldo has been fantastic so far. We can notice he has been improving a lot over the years. When we become such good players, that's also due to a few older players we consider as role models. In my case for example, i had Chalana and Futre. In Ronaldo's case, I think I also contributed to his development."
Luis Figo also talked about another portuguese playing for Real Madrid, Ricardo Carvalho. Figo reckonized Carvalho's merits: "For someone who's playing his first season in Spain, he's been at a great level."
Real Madrid was another topic approached by Figo. The 37 years old portuguese, said that "Los Merengues" have been doing a really great campaign so far, but it hasn't been reckonized because of their rivals Barcelona performances, week after week. "I think Real Madrid has been playing really well this season. They only got defeated a couple times (Barcelona and Levante). Although Barcelona is on a really good moment, I think Real Madrid can still have hopes to win the "La Liga" title."
