“The greatest talent I have trained is Ronaldo,” Capello said Sky Sport. “But at the same time it was he who created the most problems for me in the dressing room. He organized parties and everything.”
“Once [Ruud] Van Nistelrooy told me: ‘Coach, the dressing room smells like alcohol’. (…) Then Ronaldo went to Milan and we started winning, but if we talk about talent he was without a doubt the greatest. “
However, neither Ronaldo nor Capello had any concerns, and the coach explained that they spoke “warm and comfortable” each time they met.
