Nani: 'I taught Ronaldo a lot'

Former Lazio winger Luis Nani has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo “learned a lot from me”, as he picked two Serie A players in his five-a-side line-up of former teammates.

Nani played one season on loan at the Olimpico in 2017-18 and scored three goals in his 18 appearances for the Biancoceleste.

Ronaldo is an obvious choice when the current Orlando City star picks his best five-a-side consisting of former teammates, but he also makes space for Portuguese compatriot and Parma captain Bruno Alves.
