The Portuguese star claims the Spanish top flight is better than all of its rivals because of its technical nature, but says the Premier League was important in his development.
Speaking in the aftermath of being awarded Best Player at the annual Globe Soccer convention in Dubai on Wednesday, the 26-year-old maintained that his experience in the Premier League helped him mold his game but feels that he now plays in a superior domestic league.
"When I was at Manchester United, I learned the basic rules of soccer, especially the discipline of tackling, but La Liga is the best in the world because it is based on players' skills and technique," asserted Ronaldo.
Ronaldo further shared his take on life, revealing that he prefers to live for the present day rather than anticipate what will happen in the future.
"I do not want to think about what will happen, but instead I [prefer to] enjoy the moment," he stated.
The Portugal international has enjoyed a fine individual season for Real Madrid, scoring 25 goals in just 23 appearances for the Blancos so far.
