Manchester United goalkeeper, Lee Grant, believes Cristiano Ronaldo is already having a positive influence on his new teammates’ approach.
Ronaldo made a two-goal return for Manchester United on Saturday.
And Grant revealed today the difference Ronaldo is already making. He told talkSPORT: “This happened on Friday night, at the hotel. As you know, on Friday night there is always something different on the table. Contrary to what is normal, not one player touched those dishes.
“We all looked at Cristiano’s plate and it was the healthiest thing imaginable. No one, after that, was able to try these kinds of dishes.”
Grant also spoke of Ronaldo’s introduction to the squad.
“Usually the idea is to pick up a spoon, go up to the table and sing. We had (Raphael) Varane and (Jadon) Sancho having their moment and we wondered if Cristiano was going to do the same. Instead of singing, he made a speech. I won’t reveal the content, but it was interesting. One of the points he focused on was his nerves.”
