Montpellier’s young striker Stephy Mavididi, who rubbed shoulders with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus, was really very impressed by the mental strength of the Portuguese champion!!!
At the age of 35, Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t declined. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner continues to stack up the goals like pearls at Juventus, having perfectly acclimatised himself to the characteristics of Serie A.
Athletic, technical, tactically intelligent, CR7 looks like the perfect striker. But for Stephy Mavididi, who played alongside the phenomenon at Juventus, it is indeed the Portuguese mind that is at the origin of this phenomenal consistency.
“As with Thierry (Henry, editor’s note), it was his mental strength that struck me,” explained the young Englishman in remarks to The Team. He is capable of being present at all times and in any situation. If I could choose just one of his qualities, it would be this one. It takes time, experience and many, many failures to reach such a mental level. I started to think more about statistics, not just in matches.
About constantly wanting to be the best, the one who scores the most goals in training for example. What I also realised was the importance of taking care of your body on a daily basis. Cristiano always came before the others to spend time in the gym. And after each training session he would go back to do more.”
