10. Ronaldo’s Work Ethic
When he came into Manchester United- all he had in his game was pace- dribbling skills and vision. He was weak and looked brittle. From the views of Gary Neville and Paul Scholes, he also was given a tough time in the beginning. But he got respect from his seniors after putting in tons of hard work, dedication and sweat on the pitch- and trained harder than any senior player in the Manchester United squad. From mere sticks and bones- he became the most muscular footballer in United- thanks to 5-8 hours of gym sessions. And when you earn the respect of great players like Scholes, Giggs, Neville and Robbie Keane- you know that you’re the best player in the team.
