Douglas Costa credits Cristiano Ronaldo with having a transformative effect on the Juventus squad.
The 34-year-old joined the Serie A club from Real Madrid in a deal worth £99.2million in July 2018.
He helped the Serie A giants to the league title in his first season while scoring 28 goals in all competitions.
Ronaldo’s dedication to his craft both on and off the pitch is often credited for him being one of the greatest players of all time.
Despite entering his mid-30s, he continues to score goals at an astonishing rate and has shown no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
His physique has even driven other Juve players to work harder and reduce their own body fat levels, according to winger Douglas Costa.
“I’ve always fed myself well, now more so than ever. I’m 29 and I feel it”, he told Esporte Interativo.
“You often see him Ronaldo topless and his physique is awesome. It drives everyone on and we all want to have a body like his.
“From when he arrived at the club, the percentage of body fat throughout squad has gone down.
“It’s remarkable. He gives us a lot off the field.”
