The Manchester United striker and captain of the Portuguese team, Cristiano Ronaldo, assured that for his generation “it was more difficult to play in the first team” and that also for young people “today things are easier and they do not value them enough ».
“I’m not just talking about football, this new generation, probably from the 90s or 95s, see life, football and problems differently,” said the five-time Ballon d’Or winner in an interview broadcast since Tuesday on the DAZN platform.
His return to the Old Trafford team with which he achieved seven touchdowns this season was one of the issues that the former Juventus and Real Madrid touched. “I have not come on vacation, I have come back to win titles and if we all think like that, I think it will be possible. It will be difficult? Of course, we have new players, a new system, but that doesn’t matter, “he said.
“As a player I have changed, of course. I played more as a winger, I was faster, I dribbled more and now I measure my goals more. I save the energy for the appropriate moments in which to kill the game, the experience in the game makes you decide better, “explained the top scorer in football at the national team level.
Regarding his current status with the ‘Red Devils’, the 36-year-old footballer gave his opinion about the squad led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “On my second day with the group, I gave a speech at the hotel and said that I am proud to be here and I see great potential in this group of players,” he said.
Regarding the English league to which he returned after 12 years, the Portuguese striker clarified what for him the difference from other competitions he has gone through during his career. “In the Premier, the players are more honest, in my opinion. They don’t hit so many kicks, ”he pointed out. EFE. (HN)
