Ronaldo targets Euro glory

28 November 2007 07:23
Cristiano Ronaldo believes Manchester United have all the attributes required to win the Champions League after qualifying for the knockout stage as group winners. The Portuguese winger scored a stoppage time winner in Tuesday's 2-1 success over Sporting Lisbon at Old Trafford which confirmed their progression to the last 16 as Group F winners. And Ronaldo believes the Red Devils could go all the way this season after their 100 per cent start to their European campaign which has seen them win all five of their group games this season. "People like to see Manchester play," he said. "The second round, I hope we do the same job. You have the team, you have the group, you have the coaches. I think we have everything to win the Champions League." Meanwhile, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he may rest some players for the final group game against AS Roma with United's passage as top seeds already secured. Five days after the trip to Rome the champions face a difficult Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool. "It is important in the sense that when we go to Rome I will be able to use all my squad," he said. "One or two might not travel because there's an important game coming up against Liverpool. "But we'll still play a team we hope can win the match."
