Former Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has played alongside Cristiano Ronaldo for three years and has now spilled some dressing room secrets about the Portuguese.
The 34-year-old, who left United in 2014 and retired earlier this year, explained why Ronaldo was a good influence for the Red Devils dressing room
"Cristiano was a funny guy. He liked to laugh and make jokes. Even to take jokes," Vidic told BBC.
"Sometimes he didn't take them happily, but he was still pushing for them. He loved to dance, which was great for the dressing room.”
Vidic also praised his former teammate for his professionalism, while saying many others don’t work hard enough to live up to their talent.
"He was also one of the best professionals I ever saw,” the Serbian added.
"He was committed to football. He had big expectations for himself and wanted to achieve great things. That drove him to train hard to improve. For that I respect him a lot.
"There were a lot of very talented players - better than I was - but they were not committed to football.
"They would not give 100% of their capabilities. They don't work outside of the training pitch. That is why Ronaldo did what he did. He is an example for how football players should train and live."
Vidic and Ronaldo won 10 trophies together at United before the Portuguese joined Real Madrid in 2009.
