“Of course it’s a special day, it’s the opening of my museum and I am proud,” said the Portugal forward, who has scored 33 goals this season so far.
“I have room for more trophies. I don’t really want to mention specific ones. All I want is to win more awards and if the Ballon d’Or comes, there is extra room here.”
Ronaldo added that he is still undecided about attending this year’s awards ceremony. “I am still talking about it with the club and I will see if I go,” he said.
The star also told the press that the museum was for his fans to get closer to his achievements.
