Ancelotti speaks of working with Ronaldo

Bayern Munich head coach Carlo Ancelotti has spoken of working with Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 57-year-old specialist has hailed the 31-year-old Portugal international captain self-motivation.

“His appetite is inexhaustible. People had told me before going to Madrid, but until you work with him every day you do not realize the degree to which he works,” said the German club manager.

“He is tremendously professional and works as hard as the rest. From recovery, to diet, taking care of every detail, making sure everything is optimal.

“I compare him with my playing days, there is no comparison, today’s players are much more professional, but Cristiano takes all that to another level.”
