RONALDO: ROONEY WAS JOKIN

October 9, 2009

Cristiano Ronaldo believes Wayne Rooney’s comments about Portugal not qualifying for the World Cup were in jest.

Rooney had said “it would be nice” if Portugal did not qualify for the competition in South Africa next year, as England have been knocked out of their last two major tournaments by Ronaldo’s side.

BARCELONA STUNNED BY REAL DEALS

June 11, 2009

Barcelona finance director Xavier Sala i Martin is bewildered as to how Real Madrid are funding their summer spending spree.

With a reported transfer budget of 300million euros at their disposal, Madrid president Florentino Perez has this week set about creating a second ‘galacticos’ era.

The Spanish giants had a world-record bid of £80million for Portugal winger Cristiano Ronaldo accepted by Manchester United on Thursday, hot on the heels of Monday’s 68million euros acquisition of Brazil playmaker Kaka from AC Milan.

And Sala i Martin, whose team finished nine points clear of Madrid at the Primera Division summit last month, is puzzled by how the purchases are being financed.

He told Radio Station RAC1: “I don’t know where the 300million euros that Florentino Perez expects to invest on signings are coming from.

“He says he will recover that money by selling shirts but, in order to do that, he will have to sell 30million shirts. That is impossible.”

Sala i Martin is stunned Madrid are able to spend so much money in such a difficult economic climate.

He added: “I guess someone will have to give him that money and it would be good for him to explain where it will come from.

“How can it be that a football team is loaned so much money, considering the current financial crisis in the country and the policy of restricting credits that banks are currently following?

“I can assure you that we will not pay 65million euros for a player.

“For that amount we would buy the whole Barcelona team that won the Champions League in Rome.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s driving force as he prepares for Manchester United’s Champions League final against Barcelona tonight is the prospect of making history.

United will become the first club to retain the trophy in the 17-year lifetime of the competition if they defeat the Spanish champions in the Stadio Olimpico.

And Ronaldo, who admits his affection for Spanish football, claims that means much more to him than winning the world footballer of the year trophy last season when he beat Barcelona’s Lionel Messi into second place.

Ronaldo said: “I like the Spanish league. I feel well in England in the Premier League, it is the strongest league. Barcelona have a great team which deserves respect but I believe we are better than them and we will show it.

“I respect Barcelona profoundly. Messi is playing marvellously well. I want to be sincere. I have to play well tomorrow for the team and the supporters. I look forward to it and I think it will be really special.

“I don’t care about the Ballon D’or. What I want more is to win the Champions League. That’s it.

“I just want to be the first team in history to win it twice.”

Ronaldo has dismissed any fears about playing in white, like the Real Madrid side who were annihilated 6-2 by Barcelona recently.

He also insisted he is happy to carry the burden of the spotlight which constantly surrounds him.

“It’s normal that people speak about me but I am 100% focused on this game,” he said.

“I try to help my team 100%, score a goal and win the game. That’s it.”

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson also gave an insight into what makes Ronaldo United’s most potent threat and why he constantly conjures up feats such as the 41-yard free-kick screamer which broke Arsenal hearts in the semi-final second leg at the Emirates.

Ferguson said: “There’s no mystery. He’s always out there after the team training has finished, practising his shots. The great players don’t rely on their natural ability, they practice to make sure they have that something extra.

“In the semi-final against Arsenal I could tell he was going to hit it, from the body shape, even though it was so far out.”
