Cristiano Ronaldo Not Surprised By Jose Mourinho's Troubles

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo says former club Manchester United still have plenty of work to do to return to the top table of European football.

The Portuguese, 30, is a three-time world footballer of the year, and Real Madrid's all-time leading goalscorer.

Speaking this week, Ronaldo said: "If you look back over my past eight years, I've always been at the peak; and that is hard. They are better. They are at the top so it's good and it's a club I like, everyone knows that", said Ronaldo, as reported by Sky Sports.

"Messi is an unbelievable player and maybe it pushes me more, harder to be better and better".

The Ballon d'Or is always between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, players from another planet.

But Wenger has urged players to not focus too much on individual awards as he steered clear of revealing who he thought was better, Ronaldo or Messi. "How dare you say that to me?!"

Cristiano continued: "When [my son] is grown up I will tell him what I did, what I felt, everything that went through my mind".

"I always loved the way Barcelona play and the players".

'I don't think so. Spanish publication Don Balon reports that Madrid are keen on Manchester United's Memphis Depay, and are willing to pay €65 million to take him from Old Trafford.

He added: "People speculate I was with this girl or another, or there was a surrogate mother". Having had only one shot on target at recent league their game against Crystal Palace, it is no surprise that the footballing world has started to ask questions. Of course, he's a manager that I was working with for two years and I know his potential.

In the BBC interview, Ronaldo did a Q&A with editor Dan Roan in which he touched on a few subjects other than his greatness, including a film about his life, Ronaldo, scheduled for release on Monday.
