Cristiano Ronaldo is known for his lifestyle, which includes a discipline that few players have. Healthy food, gym, long workouts, sleeping on time are just some of the things that make this Portuguese star the way he is.
His teammates are fascinated by the discipline of this great Portuguese, and one of them who is impressed is Arthur, currently a Juventus footballer who remembered one moment with Ronaldo while the Portuguese was playing for Juventus.
"We used to sit together at the table and sometimes he would look at our plates and say 'this is not what you should be eating' Ronaldo’s not a football player, he is an athlete of choice. "He surprised me with his professionalism, with everything he does on the pitch and also off it.
He is very careful with his food and always makes a point of getting 15 minutes of sun. Furthermore, he is always attentive to the people around him." - Arthur said, as quoted by dailystar
Manchester United player on Ronaldo's meal
Lee Grant, currently a teammate of Ronaldo and the third option on Manchester United’s goal says Cristiano has changed certain things at United by his example.
Also, Grant described what it looked like after the Portuguese arrived at Manchester United this summer “One of the lads said to me, 'What has Cristiano got on his plate?' "So we were having a little goosey gander at what he has got and obviously it is the cleanest, most healthy plate you can imagine.
"And it just cracked me up how not one single player dared get up and have that junk food that was laid out. And Ronaldo made a major health statement in the summers' European Championships too." Cristiano Ronaldo should be an example to many footballers of how discipline and work ethic affect an individual’s success.
Of course, there is also talent, but we must not underestimate everything else that must have made Ronaldo a great player
