Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has finally responded to all the criticism he has faced in recent weeks after the club's struggles.
Ronaldo completed a sensational return to the Red Devils in the last transfer window and has bagged six goals in nine appearances across all competitions.
However, United's results in the Premier League have not been impressive and the 36-year-old came in a lot of criticism after the 4-2 loss to Leicester City last weekend.
"I know when the team needs my help defensively. But my role in the club is to win, help the team to win and to score goals - [the defensive side] is part of my job," Ronaldo said in interview with Ronaldo.
"The people who don't want to see that is because they don't like me but to be honest I'm 36, I win everything so am I going to be worried about the people who say bad things about me? I sleep good at night. I go to my bed with my conscience very good. Keep going with that because I will still close mouths and win things.
"Criticism is always part of the business. I'm not worried about that. And I see it as a good thing to be honest. If they worry about me or they speak about me, it's because they know my potential and value in football still. So it's good. I'll give you an example: if you're in a school and you're the best student, you ask the worst student if he likes the best, they'll say they don't like him.
"I think the main word is that I'm still happy and enjoying football. It doesn't matter how many things I won in my career. I win everything but I'm still motivated. I'm in a new chapter of my life, even with my age, and this is why I am here - to try to win and I think Manchester needs to be at this level of winning and thinking to win big things so I'm here to help."
