‘Records follow me I don’t…’, Cristiano Ronaldo’s BOLD statement after disappointing season with Manchester United | Football News

Manchester United and Portugal striker Cristiano Ronaldo claims that records chase him, he doesn’t chase them, on Man United’s official website. Ronaldo has always remained in the limelight with breaking records, scoring goals and many more things he does and achieves in football. Currently, the 37-year-old is having a tough time with his team, Manchester United, which finished sixth in the previos Premier League season.

However, Ronaldo has caught the eye at Old Trafford even in a disappointing season, scoring 24 goals across all competitions and netting various individual awards.

He is grateful that the fans have been behind him from that memorable first game back and admits he was ‘nervous’ prior to hitting a brace in a 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle United in MI6.

“What I have to say to the fans is they are amazing,” Cristiano told United’s official website. “Even when you’ve lost the game, they always support us, they’re always with us.”

He’s been another strong season for Ronaldo personally, despite United’s issues on the pitch.

He set a new international goalscoring record the week after his transfer to the Reds was announced and is currently on an astonishing 115 goals for Portugal.

In December, he scored against Arsenal to pass 800 career goals and then, on his way to a hat-trick versus Tottenham in March, he surpassed Josef Bican as FIFA’s all-time record goalscorer in competitive matches.

The 37-year-old has been used to setting such incredible numbers during his career, but now he’s fixed his sights on adding to the silverware he collected during his first spell at United, between 2003 and 2009.

“The records (are] coming in a natural way,” he added. “I don’t follow the records, but the records follow me so it’s good.”

“It’s still my motivation to carry on working hard, to still love the passion for the game, and of course Manchester and my teammates help me all the way so I have to appreciate all the people who help Cristiano. It’s always nice to score goals for this club. When it is a hat trick it’s even more (nice).”

“But the most important thing for me is to try to win the games and try to win some championship or some cup but I believe that Manchester will be where they belong. Sometimes it takes time, but I still believe.”
