The five-time FIFA World Women’s Player of The Year shed light on her relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo as well as her love for the Portuguese forward’s club side, Real Madrid.

“I always follow both Real Madrid and Barcelona because I love watching football.

“But in the last few years, I have been following Real Madrid more because I am in touch with some of the players and because I have a great admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo.

“I admire his dedication to his profession, his work, and his winner’s mentality – he always wants to win everything and he takes good care of himself to maintain himself in top shape,” Marta exclusively told Spanish paper AS.

“He has an immense ability to bounce back during the most difficult times.

“He’s always very focused and sure of himself and what he does.

“What I like about him is that whenever the team needs him, he’s there, without fail.

“He’s the player I follow the most.

“When he played for Manchester United, I followed Manchester United. So these days, I support Madrid because of him.”

Marta is currently on international duty with the Brazilian women’s national team, who is set to clash with their Spanish counterparts at the Fernando Torres stadium in Fuenlabrada, Spain.
