The first time he made his debut against Bolton Wanderers, Ronaldo tricked his way past many players and showcased his talents. From there, his hard work helped to become one of the best players in the game’s history.

After his fantastic performances in Manchester, he moved to Real Madrid and scored tons of goals. Right foot, left foot, headers, volleys, penalties, and free kicks became a customary sight for the Madridistas. Moreover, despite being 36 years old, CR7 is one of the fittest players out there. Some of his workout routines are incredible and other players stand in awe of his commitment.

For Deeney’s sake, let’s hope Ronaldo sticks to more traditional pre-match meals if they ever share a dressing room.
