What people don’t know about Ronaldo – Ex-Man Utd star Anderson

Former Manchester United midfielder, Anderson, has opened up on Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude at Old Trafford.

Anderson played with Ronaldo at Man United for two years before the Portugal captain completed a landmark transfer to Real Madrid.

The Brazilian said Ronaldo helped a lot of people during their time together at Man United, describing the forward as a ‘great professional and friend.’

According to him, the 38-year-old, who currently plays for Al-Nassr, has a good heart and he took care of his teammates at Old Trafford.

“With Ronaldo, you’re surprised at every moment,” Anderson told Sport.

“He thinks 100% about football. The game ends and he goes straight home to recover. Great professional and a great friend. A lot of people don’t know it, but he helps a lot of people.

“He has a very good heart. He took us to training. He cared. In England, he was very important to me,” he stated.

Anderson added: “If I had 5 per cent of the mentality of Cristiano Ronaldo, I could have been among the best in the world. I know it now. He had talent, quality.”
