Juventus striker Alvaro Morata recently spoke about his relationship with teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and revealed what it is like to share a dressing room with a legend like him.

Morata and Ronaldo have been teammates since their days at Real Madrid.

In a recent interview with Marca, Morata was asked about Ronaldo and the Spanish striker had a lot to share about his relationship with the Portuguese.

He starts by stating, "I speak to him about everything, about things that you can't even imagine. He's a very cultured guy who shares many anecdotes."

Morata then added, "I remember that, at the last team dinner we had, we were talking about food and nutrition and he told us what the record was for somebody to go without eating. Nobody had any idea. That surprised us, but he knows about all kinds of things. He likes to read and inform himself about things."

Since Ronaldo and Morata parted ways from Real Madrid, the Portuguese hitman joined Juventus whereas Morata ended up joining the Premier League with Chelsea.

After things did not work out with the Spaniard in London, Morata was loaned out to Atletico Madrid, before Los Rojiblancos signed him. They then, in turn, loaned Morata out to Juventus for the 2020-21 season where Morata formed a decent partnership with Ronaldo.
