There is no denying that Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the World right now, if not one of the best of all time. Whenever there are polls done to see who people think is the best player on the planet, it always comes down to a battle between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
However, things have not always been so great for Cristiano Ronaldo and there was a time when he was hated by many football fans around the World. When Cristiano was in his early stages at Manchester United, he was branded a diver, as he would regularly go down too easily.
Thanks to the guidance of Sir Alex Ferguson, Cristiano Ronaldo changed his diving ways and tried to stay on his feet more often. This led to him becoming one of the greatest players on the planet and saw him start to score goals for fun.
Gareth Bale has been proving to be a huge player for Tottenham Hotspur recently but the label of diver continues to follow him around. It has now been claimed that, if Gareth Bale stops going to ground so easily and stays on his feet more often, he could follow in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo and become one of the best in the business.
