'Ronaldo Is Not Who Everyone Thinks He Is'

'Cristiano Ronaldo Is Not Who Everyone Thinks He Is'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Oct 09, 2017 08:06 AM @KurtLaduma

A former teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo's has insisted the Portuguese is not who he is often made out to be.

Ronaldo Equals Lewandowski’s European All-time Record

It is often speculated that the 32-year-old is a self-centred individual, but his former Manchester United colleague Edwin van der Sar has denied those claims, and recalled how hard Ronaldo works in training to improve his game.

"Off the field, Cristiano was also focusing on everything extensively, such as resting up properly and strengthening his body," the retired shot-stopper told FourFourTwo.

"After training sessions, he would often work on his free-kicks and he would come to me and say: 'Edwin, can you go in goal?' I'd say I was old so he would be better off using one of the youth team keepers, but he would insist as he wanted to score past me.

"I would tease him a lot and say things like: 'You're not going to score against me, Ronnie, you know it'. He'd get very agitated and reply: 'No, no. You have to go in goal!'

"It was all worthwhile though – it was those extra, afterhours sessions which turned Cristiano into one of the best free-kick takers in the game.

"Cristiano is a really good guy and the common perception of him is not a true reflection of his personality."
