Cristiano Ronaldo: ‘United did nothing to win’

November 8, 2018

Cristiano Ronaldo insists Manchester United “did nothing to win the game” and Juve “could’ve killed it off three or four times.”

The Portuguese forward scored a sensational individual goal but it wasn’t enough as Juve slumped to a 2-1 loss in the dying minutes of the game.

“The Champions League is a special competition, where you could be winning, but can’t relax, as anything can happen,” CR7 told Sky Sport Italia.

“We dominated the game for 90 minutes, had so many chances, could’ve killed it off three or four times, but we relaxed and were punished.

“Manchester United did nothing to win the game. You can’t even talk about luck, because you have to find your own luck and in this case we just gifted it to them.

“Now we’ve got to lift our heads, as we played really well and are still top of the group.

“The volley? I saw the replay in the dressing room. I didn’t realise it was a fantastic goal, but I did a good movement and I kick the ball strong.

“I was happy with the goal, but of course I’m a little bit disappointed because we should win the game with three or four goals. Manchester didn’t do much, they had two chances on set pieces. I know English teams are always looking for set pieces.

“We will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group, so it’s all good.

“It’s too early, we have to take it step by step. We are top of the group, we’re a good team, but it’s a long way for the final. These people, the club, they dream of winning the Champions League, but we have to take it step by step.

“We have a good team, we have a good Coach, we have good supporters – step by step!”
