EPL What Cristiano Ronaldo did to me – Arsenal captain, Odegaard. Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo was one of three players that helped Martin Odegaard, the captain of Arsenal, settle well at Real Madrid.
Odegaard, a former teammate of Ronaldo’s when they played for Real Madrid, said that the Al-Nassr star looked after him.
When the Norwegian international joined Real Madrid for £3 million back in January 2015, he was the most sought-after player in European sport.
When the midfielder first moved to Madrid at the age of 16, he was unable to converse in Spanish, but fortunately, other players, like Ronaldo, Luka Modric, and Toni Kroos, could speak English.
The 24-year-old stated in a statement to The Players’ Tribune: “When I step into their locker room, all I can think about is how these guys will treat me. This small boy who had no knowledge of Spanish.
But everyone was incredibly nice, and Ronaldo, Modric, and Kroos—who all knew English—took extra special care of me at first.
