Cristiano Ronaldo Gives Surprising Answer About Who His Favourite Manager Was
Even at the age of 33, Cristiano Ronaldo is showing little sign of slowing down. He might have decided to call it time on his career at Real Madrid last summer, but that doesn't mean the former Manchester United winger is not relishing a fresh challenge with Juventus.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has revealed the manager who he rates the highest on his list.
"Work with Mourinho again? Why not? I would put him at the top, I always say that," he said (via the Daily Mirror).
"I have played for so many great coaches, but José Mourinho was a big thinker analytically, he went into everything in great detail."
Yes, Madrid's former talisman rates the current United boss at the top of his list.
Ronaldo also spoke about the former Chelsea boss' tactics and how it impacted his style of play on the pitch.
"No, I don't but I have to adapt to what is asked of me," he said. "This is the way it is. We have a strategy."
It's some strong words of praise from the Juventus star, especially when he's worked under the likes of Zinedine Zidane at Madrid and Sir Alex Ferguson at United.
