Serie A By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 03/10/2018

Brazil legend Cafu has given his opinion on Cristiano Ronaldo Serie A to join the Italian Champions.

Cafu is of the view that Ronaldo will "suffer a little" in Serie A after he quit Real Madrid to unite with the Bianconeri Old Ladies.

Ronaldo struggled to score goals for the Turin giant in three matches but he scored a brace against Sassuolo to break the deadlock.

The former Real Madrid forward has since then been alive in the league, he has provided three assists but Cafu believes that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner won't find life as easy as he did in La Liga or the Premier League.

When asked about Ronaldo’s impact on Serie A, the two-time World Cup winner, speaking in his role as a Special Olympics ambassador, was blunt.

"He is going to give more visibility to Serie A," Cafu said. "He will suffer a little in the Serie A because Serie A is a lot more difficult than La Liga in terms of the contrast in teams and in terms of the physical contact.

"But Ronaldo is always Cristiano Ronaldo. [He is the] best player in the world and will give a little more star power to Serie A.”

Cafu played in the Serie A during his illustrious career in Italy,  when the Italian League was the European best league, but the ex-Roma and AC Milan man admitted the league has seen a dip in form over the years.

"We've had a much more competitive Serie A than now. In my adolescence, everyone would like to play in Italy. Roma, Milan, Lazio, Juventus, Sampdoria, Napoli," he added.

"You had an obsession to play in the Italian Championship. Unfortunately, [now] it is less competitive than the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga. It has to return to the Serie A that we saw before."
