Cristiano Ronaldo:

“I’m back to Manchester United because I love this club not because of money.” Image
Cristiano Ronaldo:

“I believe we have huge potential to win stuff. We have to find the best way to achieve these results. We have a few things to change and have to accept when you’re not in your best shape. We have a long way to improve but I believe.” Image
Cristiano Ronaldo:

“Lets be honest, the last five/six games you think Manchester [United] played well? No, everyone knows this we have to believe we can do better. To play as Manchester United fans want and the history of the club.” Image

“We won’t give up. The only people that give up are those that are weak mentally.” Image

“Every weekend is a challenge. Saturday we have a big game we have to try to win. Step by step. I live the present. The future will come.” Image

“I hope to win one title, to go through in the Champions League and to be in the top four.” Image
Cristiano Ronaldo:

“We won the last game but we didn’t perform the way we want.”

Cristiano Ronaldo when told it’s not about winning it’s the way we win at United:

“Exactly. I think we can make the two things together [performance and winning] to make the perfect scenario.” Image

Ben Foster (Ex-United goalkeeper):

"Cristiano Ronaldo gives his shirt away pretty much every single game, but what you don't know, is us footballers actually have to pay for every single shirt we give away."

Ben Foster (Ex-United goalkeeper):

"Don't get me wrong, This is not going to touch the sides of Cristiano's bank balance, however, let's go through the maths of how many shirts this guy has given away. So, he's played 1,100 games in his career and you get two shirts per game." Image
Ben Foster (Ex-United goalkeeper):

"I'm not saying he gives every shirt away every single game but, in those 1,100 games, you would like to think he's given one away every single game, pretty much, give or take one or two." Image

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"It would be very sad if we were not able to reach our goal, which is to play in the World Cup. But I still believe that we will be at the World Cup. In football and in life we ​​go through difficult times." Image
Cristiano Ronaldo:

"But what has to prevail is that if we fall, we have to have the ability to stand up. And I believe that Portugal will play in the World Cup. We know that we have one or two difficult battles." Image

"First we have the game against Turkey and if we win with Italy, if Italy also wins. I believe. We will see . In March we will be ready. It's going to be a battle, it's going to be good for football fans. And that's life, there's no perfect scenario in life." Image

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"I'm happy, I want to stay here [at Manchester United], see what happens. I want to see if I reach 40 years old playing, 41, 42... But the most important thing is to enjoy the moment."
Cristiano Ronaldo:

"I think a player's ability is to have the intelligence to read a game. Experience gives us that. And I have experience, I know my body. I know when I can go, when I can't. In my view, the ability we have to have is adaptation."
Cristiano Ronaldo:

"It is the most appropriate word for the player to be able to play for a few years. I managed to have that balance. Knowing how to adapt at each age to a new philosophy of play, of your body, your mind..."

Cristiano Ronaldo on his age:

"Genetically, I won't say 25 so as not to exaggerate, but I feel like I'm 30. I take good care of my body and my mind. It's something I've learned in recent years: after 33, the body will continue to respect you when you need it."

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"But the hardest battle is mental. It's the hardest. I'm focused on the mental aspect, because I know the body will handle it, because I respect the body a lot and I give it a lot of pampering."
Cristiano Ronaldo:

"I think in other modalities it is different. There is not, in my opinion, as much overload as in football. They also have a longer recovery period. They usually have three months of vacation... In tennis it's more intense, they travel more..."

"The individual is the most important thing. We are here to help when they [youngsters] need my help, my support, my advice, I will be the number one to help but if you don't want my help, do your job, look for yourself and do your best to help the team."

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"We have to have the right mentality. I look to myself and I say 'Cristiano, what can you do better to improve your level to help the team? Yes, I can improve other things'."

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"Maybe to sprint for 90 minutes, if something happens, to help your teammate if they are suffering or are tired, the small details during the game, to be smart, to be intelligent."

"He [Rangnick] arrived here five weeks ago. He changed many things but he needs time to put his ideas through the players and on the pitch as well. I believe he is going to do a good job."

Cristiano Ronaldo:

"We knew we didn't play the best football as we should do but we have many games to improve. Since he [Rangnick] arrived I think in some points we are better but as I said before, he needs time." Image
Cristiano Ronaldo:

“It's not that easy to change the mentality of players and the system and the culture just like that, so I believe he’s [Rangnick] going to do a good job. I still believe we are capable of having a good season.”
