It's no secret that Cristiano Ronaldo has had to adapt his game as his career has progressed.

When he burst onto the scene, Ronaldo was a player who loved to dribble.

He was a quick player with an abundance of skill and could do almost anything with the ball at his feet.

Understandably, as the years have gone by this side to his game has faded.

Instead, to keep at the top of world football, Ronaldo has played further up the pitch and is more of a goalscorer.

Ronaldo even admitted recently that he does not go onto the pitch wanting to dribble as he once did.

"I see football as a mission: go to the field, win, make me better," Ronaldo told Spanish publication El Pais, per the Independent.

"Those moments when I went to the field thinking, 'I'm going to dribble," if I'm honest, I don't have those moments anymore.

"There is an additional pressure. People are always judging: 'It's over already. He's 33, 34 or 35 years old, I should leave him.' And you want to surprise people."

However, despite his desire to dribble having waned, Ronaldo has shown this season that he is still extremely talented with the ball at his feet.

And a video has emerged of Ronaldo this season showing he can still dribble to a very high level.

And for a mirrored video, watch below...

Impressive.

Ronaldo may now be 34, but his skill with the ball at his feet is still plain to see.

He hasn't completely lost his pace and the video shows that opposition defenders should still be fearful when Ronaldo is running directly at them.

Meanwhile, former Juventus player Claudio Marchisio has claimed Ronaldo is a 'a monster of will and professionalism'.

“He [Cristiano Ronaldo] is competitive in everything,” he told Tuttosport, per CalcioMercato.

“He always wants to be the first, whether it’s parking the car or competition of shots on goal in the match or in the gym.

"He is a monster of will and professionalism, an absolute example that perhaps can only be found in Juventus. The club is most similar to him in attitude and his mentality.

"They are reflected in the common and maniacal desire to win and to organize every detail to succeed."
