Young Swede Anthony Elanga showed understanding after Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit on “young people”.
According to the Portuguese striker, the players of the new generation will not play at the highest level until they are 37 or 38, like him, because they do not have “the same hunger”. The 20-year-old Manchester United left winger has responded to Cristiano Ronaldo on the subject, for the Swedish media Aftonbladet : “Cristiano (Ronaldo) talks about young players in general. We are a new generation. I’m still 100% focused on what I’m doing but I can understand what he’s saying. There are cell phones, a lot of new technologies. It’s easy for young players to get distracted and lose focus. United youngsters are listening but I see what he means.
Anthony Elanga also recalled that the Portuguese was still “Cristiano Ronaldo” and that this offensive outing on his generation did not have “exchange” his appreciation of the fivefold Ballon d’Or, which won him “helped a lot”.
