REAL REACH FINAL
Cristiano Ronaldo was extremely overjoyed to reach the final of the Champions League after he also broke numerous records along the way. Ronaldo scored two goals in the second leg of the semi-final with Bayern Munich.
This helped his team win the match 4-0 and the aggregate win by a score of 5-0. The two goals scored by Ronaldo helped him take his tally for this season’s Champions League to 15. This breaks the previous record held by Lionel Messi. After the match, Ronaldo was extremely happy with the record, while he also praised manager Carlo Ancelotti.
His statements appeared to criticise his former manager Jose Mourinho, who endured a disappointing time in Spain. Mourinho came to Real Madrid with a reputation for being one of the best managers in the world, but after three years of fighting with almost everyone, he left the club with just one league title to his name.
Ancelotti has already lifted the Copa del Rey, while he is now looking on course to win the Champions League. More importantly, Ancelotti has done this in a subtle way, which has led to the praise from Ronaldo. He says that he is not concerned about facing Mourinho in the final of the competition.
“Ancelotti deserves all the credit. He has changed everything. He has changed the mentality of the players. We manage the team in the best way and that makes thing easier. The team was phenomenal and we are in the final, which is what we wanted. A final is always complicated. I don’t care if it’s Mourinho or another coach. It will be in my country and I want to win the Champions League,” said Ronaldo to the brazil mexico odds website.
