Ronaldo dreaming of CL final glory

Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo is already dreaming of a

Champions League final victory – and he wants to get it against

Barcelona.

The two Spanish clubs, who are tussling it out at the top of

the Primera Division, are both in the last 16 of Europe’s premier

club competition.

And Ronaldo would love nothing more than to dethrone Madrid’s

bitter rivals on his own turf, with this year’s final being held at

the Bernabeu.

“It would be a spectacle to be able to play the final in the

Santiago Bernabeu,” the Portugal international told Correio da

Manha.

“As much for the players as for the fans.

“I hope to meet Barcelona in this final and beat them.”

Ronaldo spent around two months on the sidelines after

suffering an ankle injury during a Champions League clash at

Marseille back in September.

Since his return he has scored four goals in as many games

and the 24-year-old hopes he has put his injury woes firmly behind

him.

“I hope I don’t have more injuries and so can help Real

Madrid win all the competitions they are in this season,” added

Ronaldo.

“And not just for next year but also for the future.”

Madrid are two points behind Barca in the standings, and

seven ahead of third-placed Sevilla.

And Ronaldo sent out an ominous warning to the rest of the

Spanish league.

He said: “I am full of confidence that we are going to get

much better in the rest of the season.”
