Manchester United Players Are Scared To Eat Dessert In Front Of Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo’s ridiculously healthy diet and exercise habits are a main reason why he remains one of the best soccer players in the entire world at the age of 36.

And now, he’s bringing that same energy to Manchester United.

While CR7 has returned to Old Trafford for Man U, some of the players have been extra careful to watch they eat around the legend.


According to Manchester United goalkeeper Lee Grant, Players have been extra cautious around Cristiano Ronaldo. And they wouldn’t dare touch the dessert cart in the presence of their newest addition.

“Usually on a Friday night you’ve got a few cheat stuff out,” Grant told TalkSPORT. “You’ve got some apple crumble or you’ve got a bit of brownie and cream or what not.

“I tell you now, not one player touched the apple crumble and custard, not one player went up for that brownie because everybody was sat down and one of the lads said to me: ‘What has Cristiano got on his plate?’

“So we were having a little [look] at what he has got and obviously it is the cleanest, most healthy plate you can imagine.

“And it just cracked me up how not one single player dared get up and have that junk food that was laid out.”

Cristiano Ronaldo has been in the news over his lack of patience for junk food and sugary drinks. When a coke bottle was sitting in front of him during a recent presser, Ronaldo made it clear that he’s a much bigger fan of water.

In his return to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo did not disappoint.

During his first game on Saturday, Ronaldo scored two goals in a 4-1 win over Newcastle. As the Man U faithful have been delighted with the return of Ronaldo, perhaps his teammates have been a little intimidated by his presence.

Enough to where they won’t be touching anything unhealthy around him, at least.
