Having shared a dressing room with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, a former Manchester United player and African star has discussed how his teammates found it playing alongside the Portugal star.
Ronaldo joined United in 2003 from Sporting Lisbon, after impressing in a pre-season friendly against the Red Devils.
Eric Djemba-Djemba, who joined in the same transfer window as his ex-colleague, has insisted that the Portuguese was not as annoying as has previously been said, explaining that he was just different to other players.
"The players didn't find Ronaldo frustrating, he was just young," the Cameroonian told American Gambler.
"If you look at Ronaldo now versus playing 15 years ago, you can see the difference.
"He was young and that was his game. Sometimes it was hard for (Ruud) van Nistelrooy, (Louis) Saha and (Wayne) Rooney because they didn't know if he would cross the ball, when you're waiting for the cross and it doesn't come.
"But they knew that was Cristiano's game, and they knew that he wouldn't cross the ball so they waited for the cross, for Ronaldo to dribble past the defender before he would cross.
"He wasn't like David Beckham, he would take one touch and whip it in. Cristiano loved the tricks!"
While Ronaldo spent six years with the Red Devils, Djemba-Djemba represented United for just a year and a half.
