Ronaldo: I am the best in the world

By Goal/Evelyne Wareh

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo regards himself as the best player in the world and feels his desire to keep improving is the reason for his success.

The Portugal international is one of the favourites to win the Ballon d’Or after winning the Champions League and Euro 2016.

And the 31-year-old’s considerable self-confidence shows no sign of diminishing any time soon.

“In my head, I am the best player in the world,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “And I am working very hard every day with the ambition to be the strongest. It is then up to others to judge me.

“I always want to improve myself. I am very motivated and I believe that is the key behind my success on the pitch.”

The 31-year-old has endured a difficult start to the 2016-17 campaign after sustaining a knee problem in the final of Euro 2016, but feels he is nearing top form again after netting five goals in two games for Portugal during the international break.

“I suffered a serious injury [in the final at Euro 2016] and missed two-and-a-half months, but I am feeling well now,” he added.

“I am back to my usual best and I am ready to enjoy another spectacular season.”
