Khedira: At Juventus and Real Madrid I met two Cristianos

Sami Khedira has spoken of playing with Manchester UnitedCristiano Ronaldo at two different clubs.

Khedira won titles with Ronaldo at Real Madrid and Juventus.

He told ESPN: "I met two Cristianos, the first at Real Madrid, a little younger and maybe a little more insecure and selfish. Not in a bad way, but he had to find his personality. He scored many, many goals and was fantastic, but not had so much influence on the team.

"Then, in my second experience with Cristiano, at Juventus, he ends up coming to the team and he has the same selfishness, which is the selfishness of scoring, but with more leadership, more natural leadership. He and I knew we needed my teammates to win trophies."
