Sometimes people achieve feats that are considered impossible for mere mortals – and Cristiano Ronaldo has achieved so many of such feats that it is hard to believe that the Real Madrid star is a human.
However, the 32-year-old has once again claimed that he is just human as he said “I am from this planet.”
The former Manchester United star reached yet another milestone as he reached 400 goals for Real Madrid, with a hattrick against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.
Ronaldo has been on a roll lately, breaking records after record as he soldifies his legacy as one of the all time greats.
He even insisted that he is feeling in prime condition to help push Real Madrid’s La Liga and Champions League title charge.
“The truth is I feel really good,” he told Dugout. “I’ve prepared myself to be fit for this final stage of the league and the Champions League as well.”
“Obviously there’s a bit of luck as well. I’ve prepared myself and things have turned out well, not just for me, but for the team, too.”
“That’s why I say that, with dedication and hard work, as always, things come naturally. I’m very lucky, and I am from this planet!”
“It’s a really big amount of goals, something I didn’t expect but it’s a reflection of the whole team, of my work as well as that of all the people who work at the club, the fans that always support us and give us this extra motivation.”
The Portuguese skipper signed a new five-year deal with the Los Blancos last November that will keep him at the club until 2021.
He will be 36 by then, but hopes to win a lot more trophies with the club during his stay at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“I’m very happy. It was a match filled with emotion, the team was phenomenal and scoring three goals made it a special night,” he said. “We’re one step closer to the final in Cardiff and we’re really happy.”
“We play for the shirt. I want to give my all to the club with the time I have left on my contract. I will try to do my best, score goals and work to ensure that Real Madrid win titles.”
“The team is phenomenal. To win 3-0 is huge. The domination the team showed on the pitch shows how fresh our players are. We are very motivated and want to go the final. We have a slight advantage.”
