Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he likes to woo the ladies with a bit of Phil Collins, George Michael or Elton John.
The winger, sure to face a ribbing from his Manchester United
team-mates, made the confession in an interview with an Argentine newspaper.
And to endear him even more to Buenos Aires tabloid Ole, the 24-year-old revealed his favourite musician was Brazilian pin-up Ivete Sangalo.
'It depends on the situation,' said Ronaldo. 'To pick myself up, I choose Brazilian music. But for romantic moments I prefer Phil Collins, George Michael, Elton John.'
The World Player of the Year and Ballon d'Or winner refused to discuss how he measures up to Argentina and Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
'I don't compare myself to Messi. He is a very good player, but I don't like comparisons. I have to believe in myself, in my way of being, nothing more.'
