Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has explained his admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo.
In an interview no doubt destined to spark a fresh round of transfer rumours, the PSG chief hailed the Juventus forward’s “extraordinary strength of character”.
Ronaldo is about to return to training, having arrived back in Turin from Portugal as the Serie A season looks to get back underway.
“Year after year, he shows a unique determination, an extraordinary strength of character,” Al-Khelaifi told France Football.
“He remains motivated by this desire to improve every day and he always pushes his limits.
“I admire this relentless will; he is a great example for all athletes of the future.”
