Former Manchester United utility man Phil Neville has said that the first thing Cristiano Ronaldo did when he joined the club was put up a mirror.
The ex-England international was speaking at the unveiling of Guillem Balague's biography of Ronaldo in Madrid, having been a teammate of the 31 year old's during his first term at Old Trafford.
And speaking in decent Spanish, newspaper AS reported that he lifted the lid on a few anecdotes of their time together in northwest England.
Ronaldo has always been known for fancying himself somewhat, and Neville has now confirmed just how much he fancies himself by regaling an amusing anecdote about Ronaldo's first act in Manchester.
According to the 39-year-old, the then Portuguese wonder kid spent just as much time on his appearance as he did working on honing his skills on the training ground.
"There are lots of stories about Ronaldo, but I prefer just two or three," he said.
"When he arrived at Manchester he put a mirror next to his place, and every day he was [looking] in the mirror... with his clothes... his image is phenomenal..."
Living it up in Spain
Since hanging up his boots as a player in back in 2013, the younger Neville has been slowly making a name for himself as a coach.
Starting as a first team coach with Manchester United, he took over Salford City as caretaker manager before heading to Spain with Valencia in 2015.
However, Neville left his post when his brother Gary was let go as manager at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
But despite the alleged rift between Phil Neville and the La Liga giants, he still has links there as his son Harvey currently plays for their youth team (via Daily Mirror).
And though he is yet to return to the game since leaving La Mestalla, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him making moves into management in the near future.
