One supporter said: “I don’t like Leno anymore.”
Another commented: “I did not like him saying Ronaldo is the best player.”
The third fan has claimed that Leno was missing a big name.
“He clearly doesn’t know football if [Lionel] Messi isn’t in his Ultimate XI. Sell him,” they said.
Ronaldo is one of few players who managed to win Champions League and Ballon d’Or in more than one club from different leagues.
