After his spectacular game at
Olympic Rome, Ronaldo is already thinking about the only trophy he has
left to win: the Champions League. Speaking to the newspaper AS for the
Brasilian “the Champions is the only one I have yet to get and I will
fight with as the team will to get it this year. I hope weґll be lucky
and that in May weґll have won our tenth. At the moment itґs eluded me.
Iґve already won a Cup-winners Cup and a UEFA and itґd be very nice to
get three European titles".
The Madrid number nine was the main author of the Whiteґs victory icy
atmosphere of Olympic Rome. His goal from a pass from Zidane and another
great, strong and fast play which led to a penalty from Figo, marked the
match against the Romans. In spite of this, Ronaldo stressed the
importance of all the players: “This team is made up of great players.
Raъl is the captain of Madrid and the one who call the moves on the
pitch, but being the leader of a team is something which happens in a
different way in each different match, according to the way things come
A strong goal On the subject of the play which led to the penalty which
Figo scored, Ronaldo is clear: “Thje life of a forward is made up of
goals and attempts on goal. Obviously if you donґt try, things donґt
happen, and in that moment you see the option of taking on the defence
and you just do it. Luckily it was a penalty and Figo could score in
"Ronny" has fixed in his mind the date of the finals of the Chapions on
the 25 of May in Istanbul: “Itґs difficult to get there as there are
some great teams who have got through the first round, but of course,
why shouldnґt we be in the final?"
On the subject of their possible rivals in the last sixteen of the most
prestigious European competition, Ronaldo doesnґt have any preferences
even though he admits that "the Italian teams and Barcelona are very
strong, but weґll see what the situation is in February". Last year,
without going further, we let in two goals in Monaco and were knocked
out. You canґt trust anyone" says the Brasilian star.
