St Étienne striker Robert Beric questions Cristiano Ronaldo’s style of play

Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe, St Étienne striker Robert Beric moved to question Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo’s style of play in response to a question about his nickname “the Green Terminator,” which a faction of the Les Verts faithful have given him.

“It is a nice nickname. Do I stay calm and cool in front of goal? Yes. I do not know where it comes from. Actually maybe I do: I am not like Cristiano Ronaldo. He always wants to score, he shoots from wherever, however. Me, I want to win. So I analyse the situation. If it looks good, I shoot. But if there is a team-mate in a better position, I prefer to give him the ball. That is certainly why I have a good shots to shots on target ratio (9:6 in Ligue 1 this season).”
