Ron focused on team glory
27 May 2009 - 07:28:42
Cristiano Ronaldo insists he is focused on team and not personal glory as he looks to help Manchester United overcome Barcelona in Wednesday's Champions League Final.
The Rome encounter has been billed as the Ronaldo versus Lionel Messi show as the two best players in the world go head-to-head.
But current world player of the year Ronaldo claims the prospect of retaining the accolade is not what is driving him on.
The Portugal international, who required heavy strapping to his ankle during training at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday night, said: "Whoever wins the final will have a better chance (of winning the award).
"But I don't care about that, what I want is to win the Champions League - that's it.
"Some players in my team have played fantastic football this season - they deserve it.
"It's normal for people to talk about me. I'm 100 per cent focused on the game. I try to help my team, I will try to score and win the game.
"It's a great stadium. I feel very good to play here. I've played here a few times and, in my opinion, I played well. I have to play well now.
"I look forward to playing here and winning. It's going to be special."
