After his brace against Malmo in Madrid’s win in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally come out to speak to the press after a 6 months silence.
The 30-year-old has not spoken publicly after growing tired of the way his comments and personal life were often reported.
However, after bringing up even more goalscoring milestones, including moving level with Raul as Real’s all-time top scorer with 323, he decided the time was right to end his silence.
“When I don’t speak with the press it’s because something’s not going well,” he explained in an interview with El Partido de las 12.
“Everyone can think what they want. I don’t speak with the press more because the questions aren’t good, that’s why. Why do you ask about things that happened five or six months ago?
“Ask me about today, not things from a while ago. Why do I always have to speak? I am not obliged to speak. If I don’t speak, another player does.”
About his goalscoring feat he said: “I’m really happy to become the joint record goalscorer in the history of Madrid — it’s not something I expected when I arrived. I am satisfied with the record and I’ve already spoken with Raul. He phoned to say congratulations.”
Concerning his future he had this to say: “I don’t know what can happen, but in this moment I am fine, I am happy here.”
“My relationship with the manager [Rafa Benitez] and with the president [Florentino Perez] is good. I’ve always got on well with both of them. I’m good here, but I don’t know what can happen in the future. I don’t know.”
