Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s criticism of young players and his remarks about Manchester United, Anthony Elanga insists he still admires the striker.
Following a sensational interview with Piers Morgan in which he attacked Man United, the Old Trafford owners, numerous club legends, and even his teammates, Ronaldo has undoubtedly played his final game for the Red Devils.
The 37-year-old has won five Ballon d’Or awards, passed 700 club goals earlier this season, and is regarded as one of the all-time great players.

He recalled that when he was 18, 19, and 20 years old, he was constantly seeking out the best players, including Ruud van Nistelrooy, Rio Ferdinand, Roy Keane, and Ryan Giggs. As a result of seeing these players and learning from them, he has been successful and has lived a long time.
He believes that the best advice is to… He prefers to set an example rather than offer advice. He shows up every morning and performs the same tasks; he is likely the first to arrive and the last to depart.
