The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan forward had an illustrious career, winning the World Cup twice with Brazil and establishing himself as one of the greatest No 9s of all time.

Ronaldo shared the pitch with Buffon during his time at Inter and AC Milan, taking him on as the stopper represented both Parma and Juventus.

And the veteran Italian goalkeeper, who has become a legend of the game in his own right during a career that has spanned three decades, believes Ronaldo was the ‘perfect player’.

‘The striker who caused me all kinds [of trouble] was Ronaldo, the Brazilian one,’ Buffon told Marca.

‘He was the perfect player, as he had power, speed, intuition technical skills and quickness. He was a jaw-dropping player.

‘It seemed like he was created in a lab.’

The 39-year-old has started the season in ideal form with Juve winning their two opening Serie A games against Cagliari and Genoa.

He is expected to retire at the end of the season but will be looking to capture the one major trophy that has eluded him – the Champions League – before he does.

Buffon is likely to play for Italy when they take on Israel on Tuesday night.
