(GSM) – Cristiano Ronaldo is satisfied with his performances in his first year at Real Madrid and is confident they can still win a prize in his debut year.
The Portuguese superstar believes he has lived up to the expectations, that were very high after he joined Real from Manchester United for world record-breaking transfer fee of £80m.
Ronaldo has reflected with pride on his own personal performances over the course of the campaign, despite spending a period on the sidelines with an ankle injury.
“I am very happy with my season at Real Madrid,” he told the Portuguese press.
“If I had not suffered the injury with a two-month gap this could have been my best year as a professional.
“In a league like Spain it is not easy to start with 20 goals and seven assists.
“After the injury against Marseille I missed 12 matches but with confidence and hard work I have returned to a good level.”
Ronaldo is confident Real will finish above Barcelona if they can win all their remaining games.
“Real Madrid have still not achieved the title but we are in there fighting with Barcelona, and in football it is not always possible to win trophies,” he said.
“I am very motivated for the last four Liga matches.
“I am convinced that Barcelona will fail in this series and we will win all the matches to become champions.”
