Nani revealed what it was like to live with Cristiano Ronaldo and how, unsurprisingly, competitive he was.
The Portugal international lived with Ronaldo and Anderson soon after joining Manchester United in 2007.
He joined from Sporting Lisbon and stayed with the pair for a month and relived some of his memories of that time.
“Anderson was in Porto for like a year so I didn’t know so much about him,” Nani told the UTD podcast.
“I knew he was a great player because, as soon as he arrived at Porto, he was making a difference in the league. So I knew who he was but we were not friends at that time.
“I knew him as a player and, very fast after we met in Manchester at the same time, we became friends. We were living for a month in the same house with Cristiano. It was fun for a month. We’d challenge ourselves a lot. We had some great, funny moments and helped each other so much. That’s why it was not so hard for me in the beginning and for Anderson too.
“Cristiano was very competitive. When you’re staying in his house for a day, it means he challenges you at any time. He had a swimming pool, a tennis court and ping-pong table.
“Sometimes, it’s just competing to see who knows who’s telling the truth, or who is right about something. Every time, there was a discussion to see who was right or who was better.
“The only time we were not playing was the night time, we’d sit on the sofa talking and Cristiano would just disappear [to bed]. We’d learn because me and Ando would be very tired when we woke up. He’d already been up two hours earlier, checking the news and would say: ‘Okay, let’s go’.
“He was the only one who had a car then, in the beginning, so we had to be ready to go with him. Fantastic moments and great memories we have.”
Nani left United in 2015 after eight seasons where he won the Premier League four times, the League Cup twice and Champions League.
