Abel Xavier, the former Portuguese defender, explained the strength of his illustrious compatriot, Cristiano Ronaldo.One of the best players of his generation, even in the history of football, Cristiano Ronaldo is the pride of all Portuguese. What he has accomplished at the highest level incites respect, including among former Seleçao stars. A certain Abel Xavier, international between 1993 and 2002, is for example a big fan of the fivefold Ballon d'Or. For him, the native of Madeira is a model for all footballers and in many ways. "He's a winner and his mental focus is excellent," the unfortunate hero of the half of Euro 2000 told Stats Perform News. You realize that he doesn't like being in a comfort zone. He was in Madrid, he won; he was at Man United, he won; he is at Juventus and has also won things. Wherever he goes, he will win - individually and collectively. Sure, there will come a time when he cannot produce the same style of football, but when you are looking to win, he remains one of the best. "" All the Portuguese admire him " Abel Xavier, who stopped his international career a year before CR7 launched his own, recognizes that the latter's game has evolved and that he can no longer support himself on its qualities of yesteryear . However, he makes up for it with other strengths, such as his physical ability, intelligence and realism when facing goals. "Nowadays, the effort [for the team] is to try to put it in the right place to score. Its qualities are now more than that of a finisher, being in the right place to finish (the actions). "For me, as a Portuguese, and for everyone who loves football, he is an admirable person. He is a great player, a great athlete and an excellent teammate in football."
