Cristiano Ronaldo: What are the dishes that CR7 ordered?

The Portuguese diet allows him to eat six meals a day. This caused Cristiano himself to provide the cooks with a list of his favorite foods. The first is a traditional Portuguese stew, Bacalhau, made with cod and eggs, which was not well received by the United squad. However, other proposals seem to have been liked in the dressing room, such as octopus-based meals, according to sources from the English club to said British media.

At 36, the sacrifice for diet, which he has made for two decades, has paid off and is showing that he still has many years left in football. The most recent example is that he already has four goals in his first three games on his return to Manchester United.

In addition, in his free time, the Portuguese does not consume any alcohol and is not characterized by being a player who goes to parties a lot. From the English media they affirm that Cristiano Ronaldo wants the squad to begin to have the same eating habits with the food of their country.
