They might be club rivals but Man City star Ferran Torres admits he views Cristiano Ronaldo as his ‘reference point’ in football. Ronaldo, 36, completed a sensational return to Manchester United in the summer transfer window and has wasted no time in getting reacquainted with life in the Premier League.
Ferran Torres said: “(He) is my point of reference. He has changed football in terms of nutrition, taking care of yourself, investing in your body. This is a long-term process in which what you do today has repercussions for tomorrow. Football is more physical, and you have to be prepared. You have to play and have a team behind you that takes care of you. There are a lot of games and trips that can weigh you down. I like them to be on top of me to deliver. I have a personal trainer, then my physio as well. They are in contact with the club, and they are a supplement for me. They are in full contact with me every day at all times.”
