LA LIGA IS HARDEST
Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he feels that the la Liga is the hardest league in the world right now. The Portuguese attacker Cristiano Ronaldo helped Real Madrid lift the la Liga title for the first time since his £ 80 million move from Manchester United in 2009. He scored more than 50 goals in all competitions for Real Madrid in the previous season. Despite this incredible achievement, Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he feels that the la Liga is the hardest and the strongest league in the world. He has also said that the title success achieved last season feels like the best moment of his career.
Ronaldo scored 46 goals in just the league alone to help Real Madrid wrestle the title back from the clutches of Barcelona, who have held the trophy for the last three seasons. Even though Ronaldo did not help Real Madrid to get past the Champions League semi-final stages, he expects the success of the European front to follow soon. Real Madrid have been knocked out of the Champions League semifinals in the last two seasons. Hence, manager José Mourinho has made it a priority for the club to win the European cup this season.
“I think the best moment so far was winning La Liga. Because I think the Spanish league is the hardest in the world. It has great teams like Barcelona and to finish nine points ahead of them… that says a lot. They are just decisions. I remember when I played the [Champions League] semi-final against Bayern Munich, I went first and missed the penalty. So, anything can happen; penalties are a lottery,” said Cristiano Ronaldo in a recent interview given to a Thai television channel. The striker is expected to be joined by Luka Modric at the start of the season.
