Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has opened up on what he has learnt from Cristiano Ronaldo in his career to date.
Speaking to A Bola, the United star said: “Cristiano Ronaldo is the ideal person for you to look at and know what to follow in terms of career.
“You have to have that focus, that determination, the ability to work.”
United signed the Juventus star as an unknown teenager back in the summer of 2003, raiding Sporting Lisbon for the forward.
And he became a popular figure at Old Trafford throughout his spell, propelling the club to three Premier League titles.
Ronaldo also helped propel United to Champions League glory in 2008 – with the Juve star on target in the final victory against Chelsea.
The Red Devils midfielder recently opened up on that showdown, saying: “I think from history I have maybe one game – the Champions League final when Cristiano scores with the header.
“After this, he misses a penalty, I think it’s the same one right, against Chelsea? This one.
“I think it was a great final and for Cristiano, it was one of the best games yet, because he scored an amazing goal with a header. He doesn’t jump, he flies.
“After this, he missed the penalty, but United won the Champions League and at the end we see him crying on the ground because he won the Champions League.
“It was one of the most important games in the history of Manchester United.”
