According to the report on Daily Star, Ben Foster who spent four years with Ronaldo at Old Trafford explained that the Portuguese is a different player.
"He didn't drink. I remember we had a Christmas-do once, and he didn't come out. He wouldn't come out just because it was a night out drinking and all that kind of stuff.
"It was too much in the media eye and he wouldn't really get involved too much with stuff like that."
