His two goals in Real Madrid’s 6-0 triumph over APOEL in Nicosia pushed Cristiano Ronaldo to 18 Champions League goals in this calendar year, breaking his own previous record, while also reaching 100 goals for the Blancos in UEFA competitions.
Reporters were waiting for the Portuguese super star to make a comment after the match, but all he said, without stopping to really talk to the Press, was
I’m not talking, as when I talk I’m not understood. And then you talk about something I did not say.
That was Ronaldo’s reaction, after the issue caused by comments he made after Real Madrid’s 3-1 loss at Tottenham, comments that didn’t go down well with Sergio Ramos.
As for Karim Benzema, scorer of another two goals, he had every reason to be over the moon, as he became the top scorer among all French players in the Champions League, leaving Thierry Henry behind him. Also, he overtook Real Madrid legend Paco Gento, having reached 184 goals with the white jersey.
I’ve been waiting for this goal a long time, I will never forget it. I am proud to outdo legends like Thierry Henry in the Champions League and Gento in Real Madrid’s history
the French striker told BeIN Sports. As for having spent almost 280 days without scoring in the Champions League, his comment was
it’s not important how many minutes had passed since I scored. There are times when you don’t score, other times you score every week. I don’t listen to what is said, just do my job. Whoever is not happy, that is their problem.
