Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo has a house that “is made for the best player in the world” - featuring two swimming pools and a special ice room.
The former Manchester United manager, who coached Ronaldo for six years at Old Trafford and maintains a good relationship with the Real Madrid superstar, provided an insight into the world-class forward’s life off the pitch while speaking at the Stanford School of Business.
And it will come as no surprise to fans that Ronaldo, who earns a basic weekly salary of £265,000-a-week - per BBC News - has a house fitted out with all the equipment he requires to aid his recovery process between matches.

"I've never known anyone like him, honestly," Ferguson told students, according to Goal. "The gym is about half the size of this [pointing to the Stanford School of Business lecture hall], he's got everything in it.
"He's got two pools; a hot pool and a cold pool. He's got an ice room at minus 160 degrees where he goes in for 10 minutes after every game. It's just unbelievable."
Ronaldo has dedicated himself to his profession
One of the reasons Ronaldo has enjoyed such phenomenal success throughout his career is the fact he keeps himself in peak physical condition.
A model professional, the Portugal international works tirelessly - both on and off the training ground - to ensure his fitness levels never dip.
Ronaldo has been determined for some time now to finish his career as the best player of all time and ensures he does all the right things to enter matches both physically and mentally ready to give 100 per cent.
Now 30, it’s even more important for the Portuguese to ensure he stays as fit as possible, in order to prolong his playing career.
Such dedication to his profession has clearly benefitted Ronaldo, who has maximised his potential and is a role model for every aspiring young footballer.
