Having fun at the training in Obidos.
Already good enough weather for Cristiano to open the spring season by showing off his perfect legs in short shorts.
In contrary to his team-mates who wear not very flattering baggy … I don’t know how to call that, combined with knee-long socks.
And the grey with babyblue shirts are also not so pretty.
“Cristiano is especially motivated. He is itching to play and has trained very well during this period. He has rested just enough and trained just enough. He is in prime physical and mental condition at the moment.”
— Carlo Ancelotti
“He’s the same as ever, although he’s been a bit frustrated over the past few days because of the injustice of not being able to play the last three games. It was also unfair that he had to wait until the last minute to find out what decision had been made. It’s all water under the bridge now and ahead of tomorrow’s match he will be the same as ever.”
— Xabi Alonso
—> Conclusion: To be especially motivated is just normal for Cristiano.
