Cristiano Ronaldo used to carry a list of his accomplishments in his pocket and get them out

Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly known to carry a list of all his achievements in football with him at all times during his spell at Real Madrid.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has achieved a significant amount in his long career and it's another example of his winning personality that has served him so well since early on in his professional career.
It's been revealed by his former fitness coach at Sporting Lisbon Carlos Bruno, who saw the list of the forward's accolades during a visit to Real's training ground.
According to Bruno, as he caught a look at the impressive list of achievements, Ronaldo turned to him in typical Cristiano fashion and said 'Not bad, eh?'
Seemingly he liked to remind himself of his achievements as a form of motivation.
This story was revealed in a new book entitled ‘Messi vs Ronaldo’, which also revealed the pair came close to playing against one another in a lucrative All-Stars match.
Ronaldo has struggled in recent times at United, with a fairy-tale return in the summer of 2021 that never really panned out.
He did manage an impressive 18 goals in the league in what was one of United's worse teams in the post-Ferguson era.
But this season has been full of controversy surrounding his future and his place in ten Hag's squad which led to him refusing to come on against Tottenham Hotspur during their 2-0 win in the league last week.
Although, it seems that manager and player have settled their differences with Ronaldo starting the last two games.
Perhaps he will be included more in the run-up to the World Cup, in what could be CR7's final roll of the dice on the international world stage.
