Having spent a season working with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has insisted there is nobody mentally stronger than the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
The Portuguese forward joined the Italian giants from Real Madrid in July 2018 after nine years in Spain, where he became one of the best players the world has ever seen.
With his debut season in Italy almost at a close, Ronaldo has earned great praise from his manager, who believes everyone can learn from the 34-year-old.
"In terms of mentality, he is stronger than anyone else. Every day he finds personal objectives to hit and he can find them within himself," Allegri said at the launch of his book E Molto Semplice, according to Football News 24.
"A player who has won everything he has at the age of 34 will find it difficult to feel hungry, but he is deadly in that sense. He has this determination that is incredible.
"We should all learn from Ronaldo, and I too have learned, because it's not everyone who gets to work with the best player in the world.
"For example, on Saturday morning, we have a game between ranks in training. He has fun, but his fun is winning the game.
"I explained it to him, and I've written the same about Ibra (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) in the book, his idea of fun is winning, but I told him not everyone is like that and for some there's fun in a back-heel flick, a cheeky move, etc. And then later you bring that into the match situation."
With two Serie A game left to play this season, Ronaldo has scored 28 goals and assisted a further 13 strikes in 42 matches so far for Juventus.
