Real Madrid youngster is inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga takes inspiration from club legend Cristiano Ronaldo who represented the Whites from 2009 to 2018.

Ronaldo, who joined the club from Manchester United in a 90 million euro deal in 2009, played for Los Blancos for nearly nine years and is widely regarded as the club’s greatest player.

Camavonga joined Real Madrid in 2021, three years after Ronaldo left, but the Frenchman is still hugely impressed with the Portuguese who is a role model for millions worldwide.

At the age of 39, Ronaldo is still considered one of the best players in the world and is playing at the highest level with Saudi Pro League club Al Nasr.

Speaking ahead of Real Madrid’s La Liga match against Celta Vigo, Camavonga revealed that Ronaldo is a reference for him on how to maintain your body and play football for a long time.

“I have a lot of references, like Cristiano Ronaldo. The most important thing is to have a long life in football, which means working in the gym and caring for your body,” Camaunga told Madrid Zone.

The Frenchman, who often plays out of position for head coach Carlo Ancelotti, said he aims to help the team as much as possible.

“Even if they put me in goal, I’m going to do goalkeeper stuff! And in goal, I’m great! You just have to shoot hard from a distance… not too close (laughs). ),” he added. “The aim is to win everything this season – La Liga and the Champions League.

The 21-year-old made 129 appearances for the Whites but managed to score just two goals. In a communication with Telefoot, he revealed that Ancelotti has promised to dance with him for his next goal.

Carlo Ancelotti told me that for my next goal, he was going to dance with me. I don’t know when, but he’s going to dance (laughs),” she added.

Remember, Cristiano Ronaldo played in 438 official matches where he scored 450 goals, the most in the club’s history, and provided 128 assists, the second most.

El Bicho won four Champions Leagues, three FIFA Club World Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, two La Ligas, two Copa del Rey, and two Spanish Super Cups before bidding farewell to the club in 2011.
