Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted that the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Real Madrid line-up is a blow.
The former Manchester United star is expected to start despite his hamstring problem and Redknapp admits the prospect of facing him is daunting.
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you I’m pleased that Ronaldo is playing,” Redknapp said.
“He is a fantastic player. It’s a toss-up between him and Lionel Messi for who is the best player in the world. Those are two amazing footballers.”
