In order to Ronaldo Calmed Rio Ferdinand on Dalot. But Ronaldo’s reply was a bit different. The star highlighted the work ethic of the youngster and believed that the kid would grow well.
In his podcast, Rio Ferdinand talked about the value of Diego Dalot:
“Dalot needs a special mention. He is someone I doubted early on. I remember speaking to Cristiano Ronaldo and said, ‘Is he really that good?’ – and Cristiano said he will work hard, make himself better and 100 per cent improve. He saw it behind the scenes so he knew that.
I said to Darren Fletcher when I was at the training ground the other day that he has really impressed me. Darren said that he is a worker, he’s going to make himself the player he needs to be. I still think defensively he probably needs to work a little bit. With the ball, if we have players running on to them, the forwards will make the runs and we will score more goals.”
