Cristiano Ronaldo officially received the Golden Boot Award for being last seasonâ€™s EPL top scorer with 31 goals in 34 appearances.
And the PFA Player of the Year marked his title with two goals against the Hammers.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored at the 14th and 30th minute to tie up Manchester Unitedâ€™s 2 â€“ 0 win. Ronaldo now has four goals in the league, and he is four goals short from a century for United.
The winger is gradually reaching top form and Ferguson is confident that his player can bag 25 goals this season.
But, Ronaldo himself is not concerned of scoring many goals for the club as he was quoted as saying:
â€œâ€¦my priority is not only to score goals. I don’t have to do that. I just have to play well for the team.â€
And it seems like Ronaldo has found back his scoring boots. However, one thing that is lacking these days is a smile in Ronaldoâ€™s celebrations. Like BBCâ€™s commentators, many people think Ronaldo is not happy in England anymore. But this is what Ronaldo had to reply:
“If I smile it is because I smile. If I don’t itâ€™s because I don’t,” he stated.
“People are always writing things about me. It is up to them; for me it is not a problem. I will just try to play well and do my best. I am just focused on playing good football.â€
Ambition is indeed what helped Ronaldo to achieve all this success. And the player hopes to continue on the good track he left last season.
