Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has jokingly called his teammate Diogo Dalot ‘little pit bull’ on Instagram.
Dalot shared an Instagram post of him attending a press conference before Man United’s Europa League clash against Real Sociedad on Thursday night at Old Trafford.
The defender wrote: “Europa League ready @europaleague.”
Ronaldo then commented on the post, “Piteusinho,” which loosely translates to ‘little pit bull’.
The two Portuguese stars share excellent friendship on and off the pitch, with Ronaldo’s comment possibly meant as a compliment.
Meanwhile, Pit bulls serve as guard dogs in several environments.
Ronaldo’s comment possibly indicated that Dalot is a pit bull in the Manchester United team due to his tenacious defending of late.
Dalot has been one of the most improved players at Manchester United under their new manager Erik ten Hag.
