'Egotist' CR7 slammed by Forlan

News

Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed as an 'egotist' who would 'spend all day in the mirror' by his former Manchester United teammate Diego Forlan.
 
Forlan spent the 2003/04 season alongside Ronaldo at United with the attacking duo helping Sir Alex Ferguson's side win both the Premier League and the FA Cup.
 
 
The season is best remembered by United fans for being Ronaldo's debut campaign with the club and one in which the Portuguese forward announced himself to the world as one of the sport's brightest young talents.
 
But Forlan, who retired earlier this month, seems to have different memories of the now five-time Ballon d'Or winner during their time together at Old Trafford.
 
"Ronaldo was an egotist in the dressing room — not like [David] Beckham." Forlan told Fox Sports Radio. "Cristiano always wanted to be near a mirror.
 
"He spent all day looking in the mirror. Ronaldo was changing in front of the mirror, tremendous."
 
The 2010 World Cup Golden Ball winner went on to draw comparisons to the Portugal captain and another iconic number seven that represented the Red Devils.
 
"[David] Beckham was more natural, they are different. Cristiano is all more worked. Beckham was disheveled and fit, the other you never saw disheveled."
