Video: Eamon Dunphy has come the full circle on ‘truly great’ Ronaldo

We doubt Cristiano Ronaldo was ever aware that Eamon Dunphy was once one of his harshest critics, but the RTE pundit has really come the full circle.

The Real Madrid star’s phenomenal goal-scoring record in recent years has meant that only the continued brilliance of Leo Messi has rivalled the Portuguese star and this season he has already continued this season where he left off last year, scoring a Champions League hat-trick on Tuesday night.

Dunphy illustrated last night why he believes Ronnie will have to be considered one of the true greats and few will argue with that statement.

For the outspoken Dunphy, it is a far cry from his previous take on the former Manchester United player and while YouTube is awash with Ronnie criticism from the RTE panel, this one sums it up well.

A “disgrace” to the game, while Barcelona were a spent force back in 2009 if you were to believe the panellist.

How things have changed.
