Cristiano Ronaldo is full of confidence following our brilliant result against Tottenham Hotspur, knowing all too well that four wins will wrap up the title for us.
He was also quick to praise the fans after a brilliant atmosphere on Saturday carried the team through.
“We have five games left and we know that if we win the next four we will win the league,” said Ronaldo. “We have five cup finals left and we have to believe. I’m looking forward to every game and I’m very confident we’ll win the title again.”
Reflecting on the Spurs’ game, Ronaldo conceded we weren’t good enough in the first half but was pleased with how his team mates and fans performed in the second half.
“We know we didn’t play well in the first half,” he added. “But the spirit was different after half-time. We were a lot sharper and the players had more motivation. I was very happy with my goals and delighted for my team-mates as well – Rooney, Tevez, Berba – they all played fantastic. The atmosphere was absolutely brilliant in the second half and the fans helped us win the game. When we are together like that, the players and the supporters, you always know the result will come.”
