‘I hope to return to Real Madrid soon’ – Cristiano Ronaldo

Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that he misses his former club, Real Madrid and “hopes to return to Madrid soon” as he received the Marca Leyenda award.

The Portuguese superstar spent a decade at Real Madrid, where he won four of his five Ballons d’Or and four Champions Leagues, as well as two La Liga crowns and two Copa del Rey titles, scoring a whopping 450 goals in just 438 games for the club.

He moved to Italy to join Juventus last summer in search of a new challenge, but he admits that he misses the Spanish capital and felt sad to leave Los Blancos as he received the prestigious Marca Leyenda award in Madrid.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Ronaldo said;

“I felt sorry when I left Real Madrid. I miss both [Manchester and Madrid] but because of life’s circumstances I have lived more years in Madrid, my children and my girl were born here, so I miss Madrid more.

“This trophy will be in a very nice place in my museum. Madrid is special, I travel a lot but there are few cities like Madrid. Much of this award is derived from what I did in Madrid. It is a Spanish trophy and leaves me very honoured. Thanks to all those who have helped me to achieve it. It is a pride for me. And I hope to return to Madrid soon”.

Ronaldo also opened up on his ambitions as a child, the title that he treasures most, and his Champions League hopes for the coming season.

“I never thought about [reaching this level]. My dream was always [just] to be a professional player.

“All titles are important but possibly [the 2016 European Championship] because it is special. It is not the same, when you win something for your country and you know that it is more difficult, it is the most important thing in my career. I don’t know [if I will win the Champions League this year with Juventus]. We will try, as always. Hopefully Juventus wins.”
