Sir Alex Ferguson believes Cristiano Ronaldo has turned into "the complete player" since his departure from Manchester United in 2009.

Ronaldo has once again been overlooked for the Ballon D'Or in favour of Lionel Messi, who has now collected the prestigious award on four consecutive occasions, but the Portugal superstar, who won it in 2008 in recognition of his phenomenal 42-goal contribution to United's Champions League and Premier League double, remains Messi's closest challenger.

The United boss has no doubt the improvement he oversaw during Ronaldo's six-year stint at the English club has continued since his arrival in Spain, and he told Inside United: "Now you see the complete player. His decision-making, his maturity, his experience, plus all the great skills he has got, they all make him the complete player."
