Ronaldo’s Warning To Real
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Warning To Real Madrid
After his match-winning performance against Paris Saint-Germain the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, Cristiano Ronaldo sent a warning to his Real Madrid teammates.
The 33-year-old, who scored twice in the 3-1 win over the Ligue 1 giants, became the first player in the history of the competition to score 100 goals for one club.
Despite Los Blancos’ two-goal lead, Ronaldo insists that the tie against PSG is not done and he believes that he and his teammates will need to go out and win the game in Paris.
"The fans have helped us a lot and we felt their warmth. It has to be that way," he told reporters, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"Marcelo's goal was very important, he played a good match and he deserved it.
"When goals are scored and your team wins, it is always special. Today it started and I scored two.
"The tie is not over yet. We have to go to Paris to win and to score goals, to be calm and to qualify for the next phase."
Ronaldo added he was very happy with how his side came out in the second half against their French opponents.
"This was an important victory. We started the match well, but we let in a goal," the 33-year-old said.
"But this is the Champions League and Madrid have the experience. Games last 90 minutes and, at home, we wanted to play a good game. We have a good advantage for the return thanks to those two late goals.
"We knew (PSG) were a very dangerous team with the forwards they have. We knew we had to press them to win the ball.
"In the second half we waited a little bit, we played better, and we had more opportunities."
The former Manchester United winger has made seven appearances in the Champions League this season, scoring 11 goals and further assisting in one more.
