In the famous interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo criticized his young Manchester United teammates. The Portuguese striker points to a lack of rigor.
Ronaldo is crazy…
After club and coach, it’s the youngsters’ turn. In the controversial interview with the British journalist Piers Morgan, the first part of which was broadcast in full on Wednesday, Cristiano Ronaldo also addressed the young footballers. The 37-year-old forward regrets the lack of standards and professionalism.
Ronaldo has experienced a change in mentality
I don’t think they disregard experienced players, but it’s a different generation. The mentality is no longer the same. You are not hungry. Everything is easier, they do not suffer. And it’s not just Manchester United, it’s the same across all teams and leagues. But we can’t blame them because it’s part of life, you know. It’s a new generation with new technologies to distract them. They listen, but they go in one ear and out the other remarks the Portuguese.
For CR7, his young teammates have many examples to follow. It’s a shame because they have the best examples in mind. I remember when I was 18, 19, 20 I always saw top players like Van Nistelrooy, Ferdinand, Roy Keane and Giggs. That’s why I’ve had this success and longevity. Because I take care of my body, my mentality, my head, because I see these guys and I learn from them says the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, reconsidering an example .
C Ronaldo – They will not have long careers
I’m not the type to give advice because I prefer to be a role model. Because I’m a role model. I’m there every morning doing the same things. I’ll probably be the first to arrive and the last to leave. I think the details speak for themselves. That’s why I say I like to lead by example. Some follow me very little, others not really. Some don’t care he remarks before issuing a warning.
In my opinion, they will not have long careers. It is impossible. Many players of my generation play until they are 36, 37, 38, but this new generation will not. However, Ronaldo sees a few exceptions:At Manchester United I can mention (Diogo) Dalot, he is young but very professional. I have no doubts that he will have a long career in football because he is young, smart and very professional. There’s also (Lisandro) Martinez or Casemiro, who’s in his thirties. That’s not much in the Mancunian dressing room…
