THE MADRID-BASED NEWSPAPER Marca has created a fantastic front page today ahead of Real’s Champions League clash against Manchester United.
It has used more than 1,200 small images of Cristiano Ronaldo to create one large mosaic of the Madrid icon.
The image of a roaring Ronaldo is accompanied by the headline ‘It’s Your Day’.
The paper declares that the Portuguese star is facing his former club in ‘prodigious form’ and quotes his coach, Jose Mourinho, declaring, “He is the best player I have ever managed.”

On Tuesday, the paper featured an interview with Mourinho in which he conceded the Spanish league title to rivals Barcelona and declared he was not willing to end his coaching career with only two Champions League trophies.
He also denied rumours that he might, one day, replace United boss Alex Ferguson.
Mourinho said, “I think we will end our careers at the same time, him at 90 and me at 70. I don’t know when I’ll go back to England, though it will normally be my next step.”
