Gabriel Martinelli has praised Cristiano Ronaldo for his relentless desire for success while labeling the Juve star as his role model.

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo recently celebrated his 35th birthday. And while many, if not most, players enter the twilight of their career at this age, Ronaldo simply refuses to slow down.

Ever since joining Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo has been making and breaking records in Serie A.

Ronaldo works harder than others to keep himself in the best shape possible and has an elite winning mentality that reflects from his prolonged career at the summit of football.

The Portuguese is well known for his obsession with perfection. Many players and coaches have shared their anecdotes that give insight on Ronaldo’s incredible work ethic. And recently, Gabriel Martinell has chimed in to heap praise on the Juve number-7.

“My idol is Cristiano Ronaldo,” Martinelli declared in an interview with Marca.

“I admire him very much for the strength of will he has, for the way he works and for everything, for the individual and collective awards he earns.

“He is a guy who does not conform, he always wants more. That is what I want for myself. To always be conquering things. He is a great example of that.”
