EXPLAINED: Why Cristiano Ronaldo always steps on the pitch with his right foot

Cristiano Ronaldo has made it a habit to always step foot on a football pitch with his right foot first over the last few years.

It’s because in Portuguese culture it’s said: “entra com a direita,” which means enter with the right.

A Portuguese fan, Jassica Andres wrote on Youtube: "The right one thing isn't superstition. It's a Portuguese culture 'entra com a direita' meaning enter with the right.

"And its pretty common in other countries too, Spain, India, Indonesia, Italy, Greece, Brazil, Russia, Asian countries, and Muslim counties too. Nothing strange."

So this isn’t a case of superstition for Cristiano but more so respecting the values of his culture.
