Liverpool striker Fernando Torres expects Cristiano Ronaldo to complete a clean sweep of European and World Player of the Year award this year. Torres has been named alongside the Manchester United winger on FIFA's list for the world award, but expects Ronaldo to be given the nod following his remarkable 2007/08 season in which he scored 42 goals. The 23-year-old was the driving force behind United's Premier League and Champions League double and Torres believes he in incomparable. "No-one can rival him," he told France Football. "He is in a class of his own. I have never seen a comparable player. "What he did last season is incredible. No-one won this year what he's won: Champions League, Premier League and Golden Boot. "For me he is the best player in the world. A machine. Incomparable." Ronaldo has already been named the FIFPro World Player of the Year for 2008.
