The biggest stars get photoshopped in today’s day and age so how perfect does one have to be to not get even slightly altered being a magazine cover boy? Ronaldo perfect.
The Real Madrid player shared the GQ cover with supermodel and Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio and the magazine admitted that they did not alter his body one bit.
If you want to get his “Nobel Prize for Physical Perfection” body, which obviously requires a lot of work, the magazine revealed his diet and exercise secrets.
Obviously, there was plenty of football discussed in the interview and the outwardly perfect Ronaldo discussed why he considers himself to be perfect on the pitch as well.
“I see myself as the best footballer in the world,” he said. “If you don’t believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of. Last season was one of my best. I scored 66 goals in one season, which is unique in our sport. But this year I’m hoping to score more.… When you don’t expect is the moment when you score.”
While many slam Ronaldo’s king-like lifestyle as well as his habit to show-off to no end, one of the most respectable aspects about the player is his honesty. The Portuguese international has never claimed otherwise. “I am not the most modest person in the world, I admit that”
The Messi-Ronaldo debate has been going on for ages, and Lionel Messi pipped Ronaldo to claim his fifth Ballon d’Or trophy recently, but the remarkable thing is that the Portugal captain doesn’t stop challenging himself and his hunt for perfection continues.
“Six goals in a game?” he continues. “As I say, nothing is impossible. Why not? I hope one day to score six goals.”
Is he selfish? Does he care more about his goals than wins? This claim might have a shred of truth as when asked what was the most important game of his career, he didn’t reply with either one of his Champions League wins, but said, “when I score five goals.”
But this doesn’t mean he doesn’t care for trophies with his team because when presented with the hypothetical choice of choosing between winning the league with Real Madrid but not getting to score, the superstar replied, “Of course, because if this happens, it’s good, because we win something. So I will sign that. I will sign on that.”
