Cristiano Ronaldo discussed matching Raul’s Real Madrid record, reaching 500 goals and his future. ‘No one knows…let’s see what happens.’
Ronaldo scored twice as Madrid beat Malmo in the Champions League, either to match Raul’s record of 323 goals or go one past it.
There remains a disagreement over a goal Madrid scored against Real Sociedad that was either credited to Ronaldo or Pepe, whom the shot struck on its way in – Marca and Madrid say it’s Ronaldo’s goal, the LFP and other sources say it’s Pepe’s.
“I wasn’t thinking when I put on this shirt that I would break the record,” Ronaldo said, AS reports, having also overtaken Lionel Messi as the leading scorer in Champions League history.
“I knew in recent days that I was going to break this record but the most important thing is the team.
“Raul sent me a message and told me that he hopes I score another 300 goals. I know he says that from his heart.”
Ronaldo was asked about his happiness at Madrid and what the future holds in store amid repeated rumours linking him with Paris Saint-Germain.
“My future is in Madrid. I’m happy here. I want to win things and I feel good,” he replied.
“But as I said a million times, nobody knows the future. Let’s see what happens. I have good relations with everyone: the President, the coaches, the team managers. Relations are good because I’m a professional.
“Nobody knows what will happen next year. I want to win things in Madrid because I think this club has the potential to win things, but I don’t know the future. The next record? There’s more?”
