Many believe Cristiano Ronaldo left his trusty box of tricks and flicks at Old Trafford when he left Manchester United for Real Madrid in 2009.
In the space of eight years, the four time Ballon d’Or winner has adjusted his game. Plenty have noticed that the old Ronaldo – a lad who produced at least a step over every game – had disappeared and a more productive and deadly Cristiano was born.
It has been a remarkable journey for Ronaldo. From a skinny, gangly teenager with Spaghetti-like string running through his hair to the almost machine-like centre-forward we hail on a weekly basis at Real Madrid. His game has changed for the better in recent times.
