Ronaldo: Madrid Can Retain UCL Title

Real Madrid’s Star Forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, believes that his club can become the first team to retain the UEFA Champions League since the competition changed to its current format in 1992.

Ronaldo, who scored twice in Real’s 2-0 victory over Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday, spoke to the press after his side lifted the trophy for the second time.

"Madrid are going to be the first team (to retain the Champions League) I hope," he said.

"I believe that the players Real Madrid bought - Toni Kroos, James Rodriguez and Keylor Navas - they're going to give more support to the team and more quality.

"It's an important trophy, the Super Cup, so we start on the right foot. We played better than Sevilla.

"I scored two goals and I'm coming back from my injury so it's a perfect night so I feel very pleased for that. My team-mates helped me a lot to score the goals so it was a fantastic night."

Ronaldo then heaped praise on his teammate, Gareth Bale, who provided him with a sublime cross to score the opening goal of the match.

"He's amazing. He looks strong, he looks fast and he's a very important player for us," he added.

"I'm really happy for his performance tonight. He had a fantastic season last year.

"He doesn't surprise me, he's shown his quality week by week so it's fantastic to have Gaz (Bale) with us, to be part of the system of Real Madrid and I'm very glad to play with him too because he understands me and I understand him. He plays fantastic passes so I love it."

The Portuguese concluded his press conference by setting his sights on winning the Spanish Supercoppa against La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, in a clash that takes place next week Tuesday.

"Let's see next Tuesday against Atletico Madrid what we're going to do."
