Cristiano Ronaldo reaffirms Real focus
Cristiano Ronaldo has again said that his unhappiness at Real Madrid is not money-related.
He wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that he is ''not worried about contracts'' and that ''my attention is exclusively focused on winning all the games and trophies in play with the indispensable company of my teammates and all of Madrid's fans.''
The Portugal forward's enigmatic comment two weeks ago that he was ''feeling sad'' at the Spanish club sparked rumors the 27-year-old star wanted a raise. He has previously denied it is about money, saying only the club knows what the problem is about.
Ronaldo, who cost Madrid a record 80 million pounds (then $131 million) in 2009, trained with the team on Wednesday after having been away with Portugal.
However, Ronaldo last week insisted that his situation was not money-related and he returned to the issue tonight in a message on his Facebook account that also reflected on Portugal's successful start to their World Cup qualifying campaign..
"Two games, six points. Mission accomplished. Yesterday we could have scored more goals, but it is also true that Azerbaijan greatly complicated our task. In any case, the final result of both games was very positive and it is now time to return to the club and think only about my club," he wrote.
"I would like to reaffirm, without being concerned about contracts, that my focus is solely on winning every game and every available trophy with the essential company of my teammates and all madridistas (Madrid fans)."
Ronaldo returned to training with the rest of the Madrid squad on Wednesday night following the international break.
