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).”
