Cristiano: “I only ask not to be whistled”

19 Apr 2017

With five goals to his name over the two legs against Bayern Munich, Cristiano Ronaldo hauled Real Madrid to the semi-finals of the Champions League and the Portuguese man sought to remind the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu boo-boys of his value.

“I just ask that the Bernabeu never whistle me,” Real’s all-time leading goalscorer told Antena 3 after the final whistle.

“I try to give my best in every game and even if I don’t score, I try to work to help the team.”

Although the capital club enjoyed a man advantage again in this second leg, Ronaldo was left assured as to his team’s superiority.

“I have no doubts that Madrid were better tonight, it’s not easy to score six goals against Bayern Munich,” he stated.

“We knew we had to play very well or Bayern would hurt us, because they’re a team who can score goals in any stadium.

“They showed that they’re a great team but we played very well ourselves and had several opportunities in the first half.

“In the second half, we conceded two goals but we’re used to suffering, and we’re happy with the result.”

With a semi-final spot secured, Ronaldo was inevitably asked about the team’s ultimate goal of being the first side to successfully defend the Champions League.

“We’re still far from winning the Champions League but we will try our best,” he assured.

“It’s still too early, but I hope.”
