TURIN, NNC – Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the world's best footballer along with Lionel Messi. One of the most instrumental figures in Cristiano Ronaldo's career is Sir Alex Ferguson. The man who became his manager while still wearing the Manchester United jersey gave one advice that was still remembered by Ronaldo.
It was this advice that now made him a footballer with excellent physique, fast, and at the same time good with the ball.
"Obviously, at the beginning of my career, he was very important because when I moved from Sporting to MU, I still had the mentality of a Portuguese," Ronaldo said in his interview when he was appointed as the DAZN Ambasador Brand as quoted by Football Italia.
"Too much stepovers, my decision making is still bad. Therefore he taught me a good way to do it. Players in the Premier League are not easy to fall, and are very strong."
"As I said many times, he taught me everything. He was like a father to me and really helped when I was at MU," CR7 said.
Ronaldo was brought in by Manchester United in 2003 from Sporting CP. Ferguson is a very instrumental figure to bring him to reach the highest level in the world of football and develop until now.
Ronaldo's achievements at MU have been very good. He managed to lift three Premier League trophies and one Champions League title. In terms of individual achievements, he won the Ballon d'Or in 2008.
