Van der Sar: Ronaldo learned winning culture at Man Utd

Edwin van der Sar feels Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo owes his personality traits to Manchester United.

Ronaldo was again outstanding for Real in yesterday's 2-2 draw at Barcelona.

Van der Sar said: "He is different from ­Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, but definitely as good as Messi, who seems to be liked by the public more than Cristiano.

“But Cristiano is a fabulous guy too. He has the odd sulk in a match but he is a winner – thanks to the valuable lessons he learned in ­Manchester.’’
