Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal teammate Jose Fonte revealed to talkSPORT: “We always have a look at what he’s eating and what he’s doing.
“You know he’s the best and you want to replicate what he’s doing because he must be doing something right.
“Obviously as a rule he eats nice and clean, you know the nice quinoas and all this healthy stuff… A lot of eggs, sweet potatoes, the broccoli, he’s into that.”
Fonte, 37, continued: “Ronaldo also enjoys steak with chips and fried egg after the games. I’ve seen him eating a little bit of everything.”
Cristiano Ronaldo despite being 36 years of age currently performs at the level of a player 10 years younger than he is, as he has continued to score week in week out in all competitions in arguably Europe’s best league, the Premier League.
Since his return to Old Trafford and Premier League after 12 years, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has found the back of the net 5 times in just six outings. The 36-year has reportedly impacted Manchester United’s dressing room as quickly as he arrived, with most United stars copying his diet.
The Manchester United star also follows a strict sleeping routine that includes multiple naps per day to help him stay in shape even at 36.
In summary, Cristiano Ronaldo’s diet is one of the major reasons why the Portuguese keeps performing at the highest level at the age of 36 where most stars are retired or playing in less competitive leagues.
