'His behaviour is just a protective mask' - former Man Utd midfielder gives Ronaldo verdict

Markus Neumayr, an ex-United youth player, has given his assessment of the Juventus star after training alongside him during his time at the club.
Former Manchester United youth midfielder Markus Neumayr has praised Cristiano Ronaldo, claiming the multiple Ballon d'Or winner's public persona is just a ‘protective mask'.
The Portuguese star has in the past been singled out for criticism over his behaviour but Neumayr, who got to know Ronaldo during his three-year spell at Old Trafford between 2003-06, says it is all a front.
“I can only say positive things about him. On the outside, it may have a somewhat repellent look, but his behaviour is just a protective mask.
I perceived him as a very friendly and open guy,” Neumayr told Goal and Spox. “At that time he was in the first team, but was also very interested in us from the 'B' team.
