‘I know many soccer players who played with him,’ he said in a clip on social media platform Instagram. 

‘They told me we start practice at 10am, we arrive, the guy is here since 9am every morning. He’s doing more exercises just for him.

‘He does the practice with everyone and then stays after everybody leaves.

‘It was in Manchester, he was 20, there were six soccer fields, one next to each other and he was taking the ball and going right, left with the ball on all six soccer fields one after the after, back and forth six times after the practice every day alone.’

In his first spell at United, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, one Champions League, one FA Cup and two League Cups, scoring 84 Premier League goals in the process.

Ronaldo made a sensational return to United in a £19.8million deal in August after deciding to leave Juventus. 

He wasted little time in making his mark on the Premier League once again and has notched 13 goals and supplied two assists in 20 matches.
