Former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez has revealed the secret behind Cristiano Ronaldo success in his football career.
Tevez has been lucky to play alongside the Portugal international during their time at Old Trafford under manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Argentina international was the member of the holy trinity of strike forces that United ever had during his time with Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.
The former Juventus star had also the fortune to play alongside Lionel Messi for Argentina national team.
Tevez has come out to compare Ronaldo and Messi revealing the prime difference between the superstars when they are in training.
“Messi, I never saw him in the gym,” Tevez said (via GiveMeSport).
“I’ve never seen him train on the weights or do technical exercises.”
“It is all natural to him, but on penalties, he trained: first he did not take them but now he shoots them all at the corner.”
“Cristiano always stopped in the gym after training: for him, it is an obsession and being the best in everything he always arrived at work,” Tevez continued.
“When the training was set for 9 in the morning, I arrived at 8 and he was already there and even if I arrived at 7.30 he was already there.”
“I came to ask myself, ‘How can I get rid of this guy?’ So, one day I arrived at 6 but also that time he was already there. Sleepy, but [he] was there.”
