Cristiano Ronaldo was pretty confident following Real Madrid’s 6-0 victory against Espanyol. The Portuguese international claimed that Los Blancos can still win La Liga, despite trailing Barcelona by four points and having played one more match.
Ronaldo, who scored a hat-trick to lead his team to victory, was pretty pleased with the game: “I am very happy. Scoring three goals gives you confidence, but we have to value the work of the whole team. We’ve done well and we have won, which is the most important.”
“Obviously we want to see this Real Madrid every time. The fans hope we will win and play well, and that is what is happening now,” he added.
Asked about the criticism that followed last weeks draw against Real Betis, Ronaldo said that is “normal.” “There is always people who will find reasons to talk against us, but I always try to do my job, and I want to continue like this. I am always happy. If you look at my statistics, they don’t lie. I want to continue like this,” the Portugal international explained.
Ronaldo said he didn’t watch the game between Barcelona and Atletico because he was “having a nap,” but he said he is “convinced that we can still win La Liga.” “We know that it is complicated and that Barcelona have more points, but football is like that. We must fight until the last moment,” he added.
Asked about the reasons of Real’s poor start to the season, Ronaldo argued that “the pre-season was too bad, we travelled too much.” “Zidane has come with fresh ideas and now we feel better,” he concluded.
