Cristiano Ronaldo’s strict diet rubbing off on Manchester United players, says Grant

Cristiano Ronaldo’s strict diet is already rubbing off on Manchester United players, according to backup goalkeeper Lee Grant.

Grant has revealed that, on inspecting Ronaldo’s plate, none of his Manchester United team-mates appeared keen to take advantage of the desserts on offer.

They will be all looking up to Ronaldo and his longevity at the top level because that is what every footballer wants.

He told talkSPORT: “To give you one instance of the impact he is having on the group, this was Friday night in the hotel.

“So, as you guys will be aware, you finish your dinner and usually on a Friday night you’ve got some cheat stuff out. You’ve got some apple crumble and custard or you’ve got a bit of brownie and cream.

“I’ll tell you now, not one player touched the apple crumble and custard, not one player went up for that brownie because everybody was sat down.

“One of the lads said to me, ‘What has Cristiano got on his plate?’ Obviously it is the cleanest, most healthy plate you can imagine.”

So, what is it that Ronaldo eats?

Granted added: “I’ll tell you one of his plates – he had several. One of them was quinoa, avocado and a couple of boiled eggs. This guy is in incredible shape.”
