Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar The Portuguese share star status, abundant talent and luck, but they couldn’t be more different in their professional aspects.
At 39, Cristiano has topped the Arab League and surprised Al-Nassr with 44 goals in 50 games. In fact, he has never scored less than 20 goals in any season and has been obsessed with titles and success ever since he started his career.
His celebration is quite a secretive one, in fact neither he nor his partner share pictures of how they celebrate the day. It was always like this: a cake, dahlias, babies and little else.
In contrast, Neymar Jr. was the most expensive transfer in history (from FC Barcelona to PSG) and it seems that some of his competitive spirit was left along the way.
