Cristiano Ronaldo sees no reason why he should not top last season’s phenomenal 23-goal tally.
Although he was banned for three games following his dismissal at Portsmouth, he has still managed to find the net on two occasions, scoring the winners at both Sporting Lisbon and Birmingham in the last fortnight.
And, while he has set himself a stiff target to aim for, Ronaldo feels he is capable of meeting it.
“Twenty-three goals is a lot for a winger,” he admitted. “To score that number made it a special season indeed.
“But I believe in myself. I feel I can do better, or at least equal what I did last year and I will be trying hard to do exactly that.”
