Deco: “The way that Cristiano trains verges on insanity”
The ex-Portugal player said he’s never seen any other athlete train as hard and demand as much of himself as the madridista: “I’ve never seen anyone train like that”.
Deco and Cristiano Ronaldo shared a dressing room with Portugal and know each other well. So well that the ex-Barcelona man assured that the dedication and the training regime that Ronaldo puts himself through is extraordinary. “The guy isn’t well in the head, I’ve never seen anyone train like it, it’s not easy to be like that”, Deco told ESPN in an interview.
Deco also shared a training room with Leo Messi and talked about the differences between the two superstars: “They’re completely different. Messi looks after his body as an athlete should, but what Cristiano does is incredible. He goes to insane lengths because he always wants to be the best in every way and he competes to win everything”, Deco continued.
The ex-Portugal international believes that you can’t compare Cristiano and Messi. “It’s amazing to see both players in action, but impossible to make a comparison”.
