“It is all natural to him, but on penalties he trained: first he did not take them and now he shoots them all at the corner.”

On former United team-mate Ronaldo, he revealed: “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 early.

“When the training was set for 9 in the morning I arrived at 8 and he was already there.
