Ronaldo cares two hoots if mega move makes him a hate figureJune 14th, 2009 - 3:33 pm ICT by ANI
Los Angeles (US), June 14 (ANI): Star Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he cares two hoots about those who think his 80 million pound transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid will make him a hate figure.
Many Manchester United fans say they are glad to see the back of Ronaldo, but he has told the News of The World that he simply does not care what the critics are saying now.
He said: “I love it when people jeer me. I love to see the hate in their eyes, to hear the insults. It doesn’t bother me. It’s true lots of people hate me, but there are even more who love me and who support me. I feel bad only when I play badly. Fortunately, that happens rarely.”
“I still have a long way to go. I really want to re-write the history of football. I am aware I’m already among the best of the best but I want to continue to write many more beautiful pages.”In an interview which will appear in French magazine So Foot this month, Ronaldo claims he is capable of eclipsing even the classiest of rivals, like Barcelona wizard Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo added: “I have nothing to envy Lionel for. I don’t compare myself to others. I am Cristiano Ronaldo - and I can win more medals than anybody else. I don’t like to relax. The fans want to see a great Cristiano Ronaldo so I try to never disappoint.” (ANI)
