Carlos Tevez has revealed that the major difference between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is their training methods.
Speaking to reporters, he said : “Lionel Messi, I never saw him in the gym. I’ve never seen him train to stop the ball or those exercises.
“It is all natural to him, but on penalties he trained: first he did not take them and now he shoots them all at the corner.
“Cristiano always stopped in the gym after training: for him it is an obsession and, being the best in everything, he always arrived at work early.”
Tevez spoke about Ronaldo’s relentless drive to be the best and how he was always the first man to the training base.
“When the training was set for nine in the morning I arrived at eight and he was already there.
“Even if I arrived at 7:30 he was already there.
“I began to ask myself, ‘How can I get rid of this guy?’ So one day I arrived at six but he was already there! Sleepy, but he was there.”
