Ronaldo is indeed famous as a figure who makes changes in any squad he plays. At the age of 36, he can still compete with younger athletes with abilities that can't be underestimated.
Lee Grant, the United goalkeeper, revealed that Ronaldo's presence changed the squad's eating habits. Ronaldo is known as an athlete who maintains health by choosing nutritious foods.
Grant revealed that when he was around Ronaldo, no United players dared to eat junk food, foods with high sugar or salt content but low nutritional content.
"Not a single player touched the apple crumble and custard, no player took the brownie because everyone sat down, and one of the players said to me, 'What's on Cristiano's plate?'" said Grant.
"We were a little surprised to see what he ate and it was the cleanest and healthiest plate you can imagine. It makes me confused how no one player dared to stand up and take the junk food that was already available," said Grant.
Ronaldo is known to regulate a healthy diet. He has a schedule of eating six times a day in moderate portions with high nutritional content. He consumes mineral water and avoids soft drinks and alcohol.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United's coach, revealed that Pogba currently feels United is serious about winning trophies thanks to the present squad. United brought in Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho; only now United prove they can win the title.
"Now it's up to us to get a result and prove to ourselves that we can take the trophy home. I think everyone who joins United wants to win trophies, wants to be part of winning United. It was the most magical feeling," said Solskjaer.
Manchester United itself will start its work in the Champions League against Young Boys in Switzerland. Many hope the arrival of Ronaldo will also make United's campaign in the Champions League run smoothly.
