Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted his main objective for 2014 is winning the Champions League title, in an interview with Portuguese sports newspaper Record.
Conquering Europe this year would be even more special for Ronaldo, since the final will be played at Benfica’s, the arch-rivals of Sporting Portugal, the club where Cristiano grew up.
“Winning the Champions League at Estadio da Luz would be the icing on the cake,” said Ronaldo, who admitted he’s a big fan of the Lisbon club.
When asked about a possible reencounter with Jose Mourinho in case Real Madrid and Chelsea met in the competition, Ronaldo said: “I have no problems with any coach, and I would work again with any of them because all of them were important at some point in my career.”
“Carlos Queiroz, for instance, was one of the most important coaches for the evolution of my game. I wish him every success, especially in the World Cup of Brazil,” the Portuguese added. Queiroz is currently the manager of Iran national team.
Ronaldo also told Record that the only title missing in his curriculum is the Portuguese league: “Winning the title with Sporting is the only thing missing in my CV. I don’t know if that will happen because nobody knows about the future, but it would be an honour.”
