Ronaldo backs Real Madrid for Champions League glory
The wonder winger scored the winner in the 2-1 victory against his old club after the Reds had Nani sent-off at Old Trafford.
But trying to steer clear of the commenting on the red card, Ronaldo focused on what lies in store for Real. And he claims the sky is the limit.
“I am very happy at Real Madrid and I want to be there,” the Portuguese said. “We have had an unbelievable week, winning both games against Barcelona and then beating Manchester United. We are in good shape and we want to carry on like that because we want to win this competition.”
It was the first time the 28-year-old had returned to Old Trafford since his $120 million move to the Spanish capital and he admitted he was overcome by the good reception he got from the fans.
“It was unbelievable, it was an emotional moment for me. I don’t have the words to explain what I feel,” Ronaldo added. “What the supporters do for me made me feel shy because, in my opinion, in both games I didn’t play like I play all the time, to a good level. But I helped my team by scoring one goal at home and one away.
“I am happy inside because Madrid got through, but on the other hand I feel a little bit sad because of Manchester United. But it is part of football, and I am wearing the white collar.” And as if to give the United faithful something to smile about on a day when their chances of European glory were taken away by a contentious decision, Ronaldo refused to rule out a return to the club.
“In the future, you never know,” he said. “The supporters and the club, it is massive. You never know.”
