“I will be the first to help young players. However, if you don’t want my help, you have to work as well as possible on the pitch. Do what’s best for the team,” Ronaldo said.

In his explanation, Ronaldo also gave an example of the attitude he used to take when receiving advice from senior players.
When he was still a young player at Man United, Ronaldo admitted that he always tried to digest every suggestion and apply it on the field.
“I remember some senior players (Man United) talking to me when I was 18, 19 and 20 years old. I was always thinking, ‘Cristiano, you have to improve’,” said Ronaldo.
“They (senior players) are more experienced than me. They have gone through many bad moments,” explained Ronaldo.

“If Cristiano, for example, or one of the other players wants to convey that to the players directly on the pitch or in the dressing room, they are very welcome to do so.”
