When questioned about being jeered by home fans and also doubts being raised by critics, Ronaldo replied: “It’s not a moment to speak about the fans, I spoke about this already.
“The most important thing is that I did it again. It’s an amazing season for me and my team-mates to win the double. “
“I think the people don’t have words to criticize me because the numbers don’t lie. I don’t need to speak about myself because numbers don’t lie.
“I’m very happy, we won trophies and of course it’s one of best moments in my career. I say it every year but it’s true!”
