Cristiano Ronaldo had a remarkable career at Real Madrid.

The Portuguese superstar scored 450 times in 438 appearances for Los Blancos during his time at the club.

He also helped his side to two La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues.

Ronaldo left the club earlier this summer, joining Juventus, but he will still go down as one of the, if not the best player in their history.

He has since continued his success in Italy, scoring 15 times in 24 appearances and shattering a number of records in the process.

But despite his brilliance on the pitch, Ronaldo still has a number of critics.

Many think he displays arrogance both on and off the pitch and some don't like him as a person.

However, Kaka has recalled a story which shows that the Portuguese superstar is a much better person than a lot of people think.

While the two were at Madrid, Kaka reveals how Ronaldo brought 15 mobile phones for staff at the club.

"He's super attentive to everyone, in the dressing room people know what he's like," he said of Ronaldo, per Marca.

"We were going to Los Angeles for pre-season, and he asked someone to buy 15 phones so he could distribute them to the staff that worked at the club.

"A very basic everyday thing, but which showed the human being that he is."

Quality from Ronaldo. That might change what people think about the 33-year-old.

He's clearly not the selfless person that many think he is.

Kaka went on to praise Ronaldo's treatment of him.

"He always helped me a lot, whenever he could he was encouraging me. I never had a problem with anyone during my career."

Kaka's time at Madrid was riddled with injuries and he failed to get many opportunties under Jose Mourinho.

But, despite that fact, Kaka revealed he has no problem with the Portuguese manager.

"There's no problem [with Mourinho]," he said. "I went to Manchester to a sponsor's event, I stayed at the same hotel as him and we stayed talking for two hours.

"Mourinho is exactly what people see on camera, at the time he's explosive, but he is an extremely intelligent, very prepared guy, so what people see in the interviews is all prepared."
