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.”last_img
