Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has rated his season as a perfect 10 after helping his side clinch the La Liga title
The Portugal international bagged a phenomenal 57 goals this campaign, 46 of those coming in the league as Los Merengues recorded 100 points to dethrone arch rivals Barcelona.
But even though Ronaldo gave himself the perfect appraisal, he thinks Real could improve on their one-trophy haul after admitting the team had their eye on more silverware and specifically the Champions League.
Jose Mourinho’s side exited Europe’s elite club competition at the semi-final stages following a penalty shootout defeat to Bayern Munich, while they were dumped out of the Copa del Rey by Barca in the round of eight.
“I would give my season a 10 on an individual level and collectively a nine, because we wanted to win more titles, the Champions League for example,” Ronaldo told Spanish newspaper AS.
“We’ve been close this year, but we need to stay calm. The 10th will arrive in the next season or two. We know that everyone is focused on winning the Champions League. You notice it in the street, but we need to stay calm.’‘
Mourinho has tipped the 27-year-old to walk away with the coveted FIFA Ballon d’Or award in December, and while Ronaldo is in agreement with his manager’s assessment, he is more concerned with performing well at Euro 2012.
He added: “I’m not the one who judges who deserves to win the Ballon d’Or, but I think I’ve had a fantastic season. I’ve won the most difficult league in the world.
“I agree with what Mourinho said, but what I want now is to have a great European Championships, because that could also help me in the Ballon d’Or, although honestly it’s not a matter that concerns me much.
“I’m happy with the season that I’ve had, but I’m already only thinking of helping my country now.’‘
