My best ever start to a season: Ronaldo
Madrid: Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo said that he is in the best form of his career after being awarded the Trofeo Alfredo di Stéfano by Spanish sports paper Diario Marca for being the best footballer in the 2013 La Liga.
The fact that Ronaldo was given the award, voted by readers of the pro-Real Madrid newspaper, is in no surprise but a fair reward for his incredible season in which he has not only led Portugal almost single handedly to the World Cup but has also netted 17 goals in the league, reports Xinhua.
"I am in good form. I think this is the best start of a season that I have had in my career but I have always been in very good form in recent years," said Ronaldo Monday.
Ronaldo`s side moved to within three points of league leaders FC Barcelona after the weekend`s round of matches and the striker is confident that Real Madrid could go from strength-to-strength.
"I think we are looking very strong and are getting better bit-by-bit. We are strong, confident and want to carry on like that," said the 28-year-old.
"The formula to success is work, to keep your concentration in training and in matches. Work hard all time. We have to take everything at the right time. We are playing in order to try to win La Liga and the Champions League," added Ronaldo.
