Patrick Mouratoglou on what makes Cristiano Ronaldo stand apart

Revealing Cristiano’s recipe for success, Mouratoglou said, “You know why Cristiano Ronaldo is better than everyone else? I can tell you why and it’s true. I tell you because I know many soccer players who played with him. They told me, ‘We start practice at ten, we arrive, the guy is here since nine every morning. He’s doing many more exercises that are just for him. Then, he does the practice with everyone and then he stays after everybody leaves. He stays.’ And he said to me, ‘You know what he’s doing?’ It was in Manchester, he was 20.”

Further, he went on to add, “There were six soccer fields, one next to each other. And he was taking the ball and going like right-left, right-left with the ball on all six soccer fields one after the other one, back and forth, six times. After the practice, everyday, alone. It’s just to say, I mean, this is next level but, next level is attainable. But, before that next level, there is already another level which is when you play, when you practice, you have everyday the opportunity to be at 50%, at 60%, at 80%, or at 100%.”
