The Welshman joined Ronaldo at Juventus last summer following 11 years spent at Arsenal
‘He’s an exceptional athlete,’ the Welshman told singer Niall Horan during a chat on Instagram Live.
He said: ‘He’s first in the gym, he goes through his whole routine first and then he’s out onto the pitches.
‘He’s a winner, wants to win every single game, every small-sided game, whatever it is, then he’ll be out there practising his free-kicks and things like that and shooting.
‘You don’t need me to tell you how good or driven he is, he’s unbelievable, he’s one of the greatest in the history of the game.’
Since breaking into the game, Ronaldo has won major league titles for Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, the Champions League on five occasions as well as the Ballon D’or five times.
Before the breakout of COVID-19, Ronaldo was enjoying another stellar season scoring 25 goals in 32 games.
While football is currently on hold, the Portuguese international has regularly been updating his 211 million followers on Instagram about his recent activities.
He uploaded a video of himself and his girlfriend working out at home earlier this week while he unwinds in Madeira.
During the enforced break from football, Ronaldo has also invited fans to attempt the ‘core crusher challenge’ after he shared a clip of his incredible 142 reps in just 45 seconds.

Pictures also showed him working on his football skills at the Madeira national stadium, home of club CD Nacional, in Funchal on the Portuguese island.
The images sparked controversy and resulted in government officials being quizzed on why Ronaldo was training at the stadium.
In a press conference, Madeira’s head of health Pedro Ramos said that Ronaldo’s exercise did not break any lockdown rules.
