Cristiano Ronaldo is known for the winning mentality that he carries around at all times while demanding his teammates to do the same. He advocated the need for the upcoming youngsters to listen to their seniors and better themselves based on their experience.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Ronaldo also conveyed that the new generation cannot handle genuine criticism and cautioned them to change their way of thinking. He added that if they carry on with that mindset, then they have to “do their job” and assist the team through self-reflection.

“I remember when I was 18 some older players spoke with me and I took that as having to improve, they know more than me as they have more bad moments. This new generation in general don’t accept that if you criticize them. I’m here to help. When they need my support and advice, I will be the number one to help. If you don’t want my help and my advice, do your job, look at yourself. Do your best to help the team.”
