"We played a friendly in Switzerland, not a long time ago, and De Ligt was stopping Ronaldo as well, it's not only Van Dijk who can stop Ronaldo.

"But Ronaldo is good enough to create against really good defenders. That's the nicest part of football,  you can't do anything because his quality is on such a high level."
