Legendary defender Giorgio Chiellini heaped praise on Cristiano Ronaldo, highlighting the Portuguese star's unrivalled mentality that makes him a dream teammate.

Having shared the pitch with Ronaldo for three seasons at Juventus, Chiellini offered unique insight into the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's work ethic and dedication. In an interview with FIFA, Chiellini stated, “That's Cristiano and he's exactly like you see him.”

He elaborated, "You can get to know people without experiencing them, but there were so many little things - like his dedication to small things every day - that made it a privilege for me to have played with him for three years."


Chiellini's comments underscore Ronaldo's reputation for relentless dedication and unwavering focus on self-improvement. This mentality has propelled him to become one of the greatest goalscorers of all time, consistently delivering on the biggest stages.

While some might assume they "know" Ronaldo based on his on-field persona, Chiellini's firsthand experience reveals a deeper layer of commitment that extends beyond just goals and trophies. It's this unseen dedication to the "little things" that truly sets Ronaldo apart and makes him an invaluable asset to any team.
