Silvestre was among those to notice his immense potential right from the very start.

“Ronaldo was just making the step from teenager to man. He was still built like a teenager and also played more like a teenager.

“He sometimes overdid it and made the wrong decisions. Cristiano created many chances and took them all on, but it took some time and a lot of shouting from the coach and his teammates for him to keep it simpler and respect the game. He learned quickly and his response was amazing, as you can see now.
