Manchester United ace Bruno Fernandes believes his club and international team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo "doesn't fail".
And Fernandes, 27, believes the Portugal skipper, 36, is keen to achieve more in his career – despite his advancing years.
When asked about Ronaldo's desire to break more records, Fernandes told TNT Sports : "[It's] the same. [He's] hungry to break more.
"He once said something very interesting. He said it’s not he who follows the records, it’s the records that follow him.
"And I’m starting to think it’s true. Because his ability to score goals is impressive, his ability to be in the right place is impressive."
Bruno Fernandes believes Cristiano Ronaldo "doesn't fail"
Ronaldo has won plenty of trophies and broken an incredible amount of records during his illustrious career.
The forward is the all-time leading goalscorer for Real Madrid (45), in the Champions League (136) and in men's international football (115).
Ronaldo's trophies include seven league titles, six major domestic cup competitions, five Champions League titles and Euro 2016.
And the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has received several individual honours, including four European Golden Shoes.
Fernandes added: "Say what you want. Easy goals, not easy goals. There are no easy goals.
"You have to be there, you have to feel it, you have to have the feeling of the goal. He’s in the right place and scores it.
"Even being in the right place, it’s hard to score. There are those who fail, he doesn’t fail."
Fernandes and Ronaldo have been international team-mates since the former made his senior Portugal debut four years ago.
But they became club colleagues, too, when the latter re-joined United on deadline day.
The Red Devils have been unconvincing in recent weeks, winning just two of their last six games in all competitions.

United's form has left them with 14 points from their opening seven Premier League games – two behind leaders Chelsea.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are facing a nightmare run, playing Leicester, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City and Atalanta twice in their next six fixtures.
But Fernandes believes they can do better, telling the club's website earlier this month: "[It's] not good enough, of course.
"We should have more points, we could have more points. It’s what we have. We have to look forward now to what we can do from now until the end of the season.
"We still have a lot of games to do it, we haven’t lost anything and we have to carry on fighting for everything."
