Cristiano Ronaldo told Juventus teammate Danilo that “Brazil would’ve won another five World Cups” if he had been in the Seleçao.
Danilo made the revelation when speaking to DAZN Brazil, having reunited with CR7 this season.
“I knew him from our time at Real Madrid and it was nice to be back with him at Juve,” said the full-back.
“Along with his great quality, Ronaldo has this attention for detail that really explains the results he has achieved. He even told me that, if he had played for Brazil, we would’ve won another five World Cups already.”
Brazil have won more editions of the World Cup than any other nation – five – followed by Italy and Germany on four each.
Cristiano Ronaldo helped Portugal win the 2016 European Championship and has scored 98 goals for his country.
