The worldâ€™s most expensive signing, Cristiano Ronaldo, has reiterated his joy of being a Los Blancos. The 24-year-oldâ€™s stardom grew at Old Trafford where he won a multitude of collective and individual honors.
The Portuguese superstar, who is also the current FIFA World Player of the Year and Ballon dâ€™Or titleholder, has started a new challenge since switching from the English Premier League to the Spanish La Liga.
According to him, things are different in Madrid compared to how they were in Manchester United. However, he thinks that life is sweeter.
Cristiano Ronaldo told English tabloid, The Sun:
â€œYou feel more pressure at Madrid. But I love that. It drives me on.
â€œMy coach, Manuel Pellegrini, is clearly different to Sir Alex Ferguson. In fact, I am much more free here â€“ free to roam around the pitch in certain matches.
â€œNot only will I use that to become the same player I was at Old Trafford, but even better.
â€œI feel like a new-born babyâ€¦ Iâ€™m reborn.â€
For Cristiano Ronaldo, the hunt for success doesnâ€™t end just yet. After winning the English Premier League title three times, the FA Cup, the Carling Cup, the UEFA Champions League, the Community Shield, and the FIFA World Club Cup, among a host of prestigious individual awards, Cristiano Ronaldo still doesnâ€™t feel complete.
â€œJust because I won everything with United and was voted Ballon dâ€™Or and World Player doesnâ€™t mean I have reached the top.
â€œIn fact, I feel like my career is just starting.â€
