UFC star Conor McGregor has narrated how Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo inspires him to become a better athlete.

McGregor spoke in glowing terms about the former Manchester United player in an interview with FIFA.

He praised Ronaldo for his attitude and dedication and that the Portuguese international player has inspired many children to play football.

Conor McGregor gave his recent performance against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League as an example in his bid to highlight the quality of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Cristiano Ronaldo was at his very best as he single-handedly dragged his Juventus into the Champions League quarterfinals at the expense of Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo and Juventus had lost the first leg 2-0 in Spain with the defensive duo of Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin getting the goals for Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid were unable to deal with the quality of Ronaldo in the second leg of their last 16 tie with Juventus as they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat which was enough to take Juventus into the last eight via a 3-2 aggregate win.

With his treble against Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 124 Champions League goals in addition to 24 goals for the Old Lady in his first season at the club.
