Mixed emotions for victorious Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo admitted to a ‘strange feeling’ after helping Real Madrid eliminate form club Manchester United from the Champions League.

The 28-year-old scored a vital equaliser in the first leg a fortnight ago and netted the winner in Tuesday’s 2-1 victory at Old Trafford to lead the Spanish champions into the quarter-finals.

Speaking after the clash against the Red Devils, Ronaldo conceded he returns to the Spanish capital with mixed emotions.

“I did my job – helping Real Madrid to win – and I’m very happy, but it’s a strange feeling. It was the sensation of wanting to do something but not being able to,” he told TVE.

“I played at Manchester United for many years, and if someday I face Real Madrid it will be the same.

“To be received well is special for me, coming home, seeing friends. Inside I’m happy but also sad for Man United.

“I didn’t celebrate out of respect to those who treated me well here, but what I wanted the most was winning and keeping Real Madrid on course for La Decima (10th European Cup).”
