When it comes to stars, Cristiano Ronaldo is up there with the biggest of them.

As at home on the football pitch as he is at a gala dinner or fashion show, there can be no questioning his style. But what does one so stylish have to say about having his own clothing range, including a daring new signature football boot?

Quite a lot, apparently!

CR on…the design of the new Nike CR7 Superfly III

It shows a little part of me! Some parts of life, I’m the straight guy (pointing to the pinstripes). Other times, it’s about my irreverence; my style and the way I play – it’s defined like a person. Myself.

..Football boots that football boots help you stand out?

Image, after football is the most important thing. If you ask they guys in the dressing room who is the best dressed – for sure they’re going to say me (laughing). On the pitch is the most important, but it’s your personality. I like to be good all the time; to look good, dress well and put nice clean boots on. It’s brilliant.

…His first Mecurials…

I remember the first Mercurial I put on my feet, I was 16 years old. I put that boot on my foot and I said “Wow, this is a fantastic boot!”. I’ve been with Nike, like, 8 years – I don’t want to play with any other boot.

…The Development of the Mercurial…

Before, the Mercurial wasn’t so comfortable. But now it is bigger in the back, inside is much more smooth. As for the outside, it’s just a much more beautiful boot.

Are the new Nike CR7 Superfly III your favourite colour boots so far?

I still like the Yellow (Volt) ones – I have to score goals in them to say they are my favourite!

…soaking all your boots in water…

Yes, I like my boots to be the best fit, so I do this to get the shape better.

…The team spirit in the Madrid Camp…

We’ve started the league well, we’re happy and in a good moment. But we will always have to battle hard to win trophies – I’m convinced we will win something with this team.

…His own season so far…

I’m having a good streak and I want to keep it this way. I’m always motivated to improve both in training sessions and in fixtures. I love to play above anything else. It’s the thing I do best and I love to have fun and make people enjoy themselves.

I’ve had a good start to La Liga and I’m very happy. Things turned out well for me last year and I want to do the same this season.

…Individual honours, like the Ballon D’or…

I couldn’t be less bothered. I have zero interest.

…Tips for players who want to play the Ronaldo way…

Training hard! I think this is the best advice I can give. Always concentrate and have a winning mentality.

If you’re just relaxed and it doesn’t matter if you win or lose you won’t care. If you have the winning mentality, you will want to train hard.

    Did anybody catch that ridiculous contradiction at the end with the last two questions? Geezus…And C’mon cristy, “zero interest”? Please we all know he just can’t win it even with a “winning mentality” cause wether he likes it or not there’s a little man across town who’s big shadow he will always get lost in.
