De Vrij claims Ronaldo is not the strongest player he played against
• The Dutchman says he was surprised to know Ronaldo joined Juve
• 26-year-old defender believes Mbappe to be a 'more complete' striker than Ronaldo
De Vrij, who himself joined Inter this summer believes that Ronaldo's transfer will surely have a positive impact on Serie A, while rating Mbappe ahead of Portuguese ace as the best forward he played against:
"I confess, at first I did not believe he was coming to Italy," the Dutchman told Corriere Dello Sport.
"But when they [the media] kept saying it, then I started to take note. For Italian football, his arrival in Serie A was positive because it gives a great boost to the whole competition.
