Cristiano Ronaldo names three Manchester United players he admires

Cristiano Ronaldo named compatriot Diogo Dalot among the players he admires at Manchester United.

Ronaldo is currently on World Cup duty in Qatar with Portugal, where he is joined by United teammates Dalot and Bruno Fernandes in Fernando Santos’ squad.

The first part of Ronaldo’s talkTV interview with Piers Morgan aired on Wednesday night, and in it he was asked by Morgan which players in world football he admires.

Opting to focus on his club teammates, Ronaldo said: “In Manchester United I can mention Dalot, he’s young, but very professional but I don’t doubt that he’s going to have longevity in football because he’s young, he’s smart, intelligent and he’s very professional. Probably [Lisandro] Martinez, Casemiro is in his 30s, but I will say Dalot.”

That answer came off the back of Ronaldo criticising young players in today’s game, suggesting they lack the same discipline he had when he was an emerging young talent.
