“When I met Cristiano, I had so many questions to ask. I wanted to know how he was able to maintain his desire to be the best for 17 years straight. Since 2003 he has been at the highest level and every time at the end of the season he is in the top-10 players ranking list.
“Moreover, he was the best for 7 or 8 years straight in Europe and in the world. He won the Golden Ball five times, won the Champions League five times. He won everything while he was in Manchester United and Real Madrid. Two world class football leagues. He won everything.
