“It was an emotional moment,” said Ronaldo. “I can say only one word: unbelievable. The supporters made me feel shy, so I think in the two games I didn’t play like I play all the time, at the same level. I feel happy because Madrid are through but a bit sad because United are out.”
Jose Mourinho conceded that it was a struggle for Ronaldo to play at Old Trafford.
“Mentally it was not easy for Ronaldo,” he said. “I played at Stamford Bridge after I left. Not easy. I played Porto. Not easy. One day I will go back to the San Siro. Not easy. One day I will go back to the Bernabeu. Not easy. So Cristiano, not easy. It is not easy.”
