Speculations are all over Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance this season and his ability to score goals for Real Madrid. However, the current Fifa World Player of the Year who is confident about himself, has put team success above individual achievements.
He told the media after Tuesday’s victory in Switzerland:
“The goals come when they come. I don’t put any pressure on myself.
“I knew that things would work out for me eventually, and they did. The most important thing was to win. The team played well; to score five goals in an away game is not easy, and for that I am happy.”
But Real Madrid also conceded two goals in the second half which gave them a scare at that point. Reflecting on that issue, Cristiano Ronaldo stated:
“Maybe we relaxed a bit too much when we came out for the second half and that allowed ZÃ¼rich back in.
“You can’t do that in football today. But then we scored two more goals, and it was alright in the end.”
The Portuguese superstar also had words of praise for Real Madrid’s captain, Raul Gonzalez, who also scored on the night.
“It’s fantastic for him; he’s a fantastic player. He’s had a great career and I’m happy for him.”
