Dimitar Berbatov, former Manchester United striker has shared his reminiscences of playing alongside Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who played from 2003 to 2009 for Man Utd.
“I am one of the lucky ones to train alongside Ronaldo. Every training session he did was like a war, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to win always and everywhere,” quotes Berbatov Marca.
“Ronaldo was a good guy, fun and friendly, but even at Christmas parties he maintained his professionalism. I never saw him drinking alcohol at such events.”
“He took incredible care of himself. Ronaldo would get to training early and go to the gym and then he might stay late to practice shots on goal. And then he would go to the pool to then return to the gym. He was determined to be the best.”
