Ronaldo Reveals How Real Madrid Can Still Have “Incredible Year”
Real Madrid superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said that the club can still have an “incredible year” despite their poor form, if they end up winning the Champions League for a third successive season.
Madrid enjoyed a record-breaking 2017, winning five trophies in a calendar year for the first time.
However, they are already 19 points behind LaLiga leaders Barcelona and were dumped out of the Copa del Rey by Leganes on Wednesday.
That has left manager Zinedine Zidane under increasing pressure, but Ronaldo believes Madrid can still make this a memorable season.
“If we can win the Champions League at the end of the year, it will be an incredible year,” Ronaldo told Chinese football app, Dongqiudi, after receiving an award at Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground.
Madrid’s all-time record goalscorer also insisted they have not given up on retaining their league title.
“We haven’t started well in La Liga and we are disappointed, nobody is happy about that,” he added.
“But now we must work hard for the Champions League because it’s the most important trophy for us.
“It will be difficult in La Liga, but we can’t give up, even if we have dropped many points since the start of the season.
“The only solution is to keep working.”
