Chelsea coach Holland: Ronaldo better for working with Mourinho

Chelsea coach Steve Holland has no doubts Jose Mourinho brought on Cristiano Ronaldo during his time in charge of Real Madrid. Holland believes the Blues manager improved the game of the former Manchester United star.

He told chelseafc.com: "Jose is always pushing the players to the maximum every day, and that is evident not just in the teams but in the individuals he has worked with.

"Ronaldo is a player I have always really admired, but in his three-year period working with Jose he really evolved as an individual. He is not just a talented dribbler who can score goals, he has become a top-level match winner who wants to make runs in behind, and to threaten the goal."
