Ex-Manchester United star, Dimitar Berbatov has come out to recount his memories of Cristano Ronaldo at MUFC.
He recently reveaed that all training sessions were like a war with the young Portugal star while he played in England.
According to him, people in the MUFC squald of old hated to lose, so there was always an amazing determination and hunger to win from CR7 and the remaining players.
He adde that he was very lucky to play alongside Ronaldo for a season because he was 100% professional on the training pitch and off it.
His words, “Training sessions were like a war sometimes, people in that squad hated to lose, it was a great environment to feed determination and hunger to win,”
“You could see how competitive he was by just looking at his training schedule, he trained so hard, he was determined to be better than everyone else.
“You could also see it in the small training games we had or in matches if he missed a chance or the side was losing, he was always determined to be a winner. We all had this side to us, that’s why we played for United.
“I was lucky to play alongside Ronaldo for a season. He was 100% professional, on the training pitch and off it. I don’t remember him ever being late for training. He was always preparing in the gym, after training he would stay and do extra work like working on his shooting, then he would go swimming and go to the gym again.
“Away from the pitch, Ronaldo would make jokes, he’d laugh at himself and he was friendly to everyone. I remember at the players’ Christmas party he was fun, one of the boys, but he didn’t drink and that was him all over – totally focused and professional.”
