Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes said Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo is the best professional player one can follow. Fernandes took part in a Q&A session on the club's official website where he also revealed former footballer Ronaldinho was his "football hero" during younger days. "It depends. I have a lot of players I like to see. For example, in my first few years, the player I think is the one everyone liked and always will like is Ronaldinho. For me, he is the player with the capacity to take you and put you in front of the TV, and you will stay for hours," Fernandes said.
"For hours! Because he had that energy and happiness. He was happy in everything he did. You enjoy it when you see guys playing like that, so for the first few years, Ronaldinho was my favorite player. After this, I have already said that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the players. As a professional player, he is the best you can follow," he added.
When asked to name a word that describes him as a player, the 25-year-old said "warrior" adding that he considers every game like a battle.
"Warrior, because for me every game is a battle. You need to go out to the game and just understand you need to beat your opponent. With all of the respect, because you need to have respect for your opponent, but you need to beat them," he said.
