Cristiano Ronaldo insists he “doesn’t know who doubts me” after his brace in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win at Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
Ronaldo scored his 100th goal in European club football at Allianz Arena, the latest in a long line of landmarks for the Portuguese, and he made it clear he was oblivious to any criticism.
“The truth is, yes, we’re very happy. The team responded very well,” he said after the game.
“It’s not easy to play here against a team like Bayern. At 1-0 down, we had good chances, but we came back well, we scored early [in the second half].
“We played well and won well, but everything remains open for the second leg.
“Neuer? He did well, he made some saves but that’s football. Neuer had his night, but we scored more goals.
“The change in momentum? Football’s like this. If Vidal scores his penalty in the first half, the match is easier for them.
“Football is a box of surprises. We scored, Bayern played with one less and it would’ve been easier with one more.
“Doubters? I don’t know who doubts me. It’s a small margin. The people who follow me, they love Cristiano, I have no doubts about that.
“Things are going very well for me. I’ve prepared to be in a good way for the past month-and-a-half and I’m glad.”
