Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has declared that he is confident los Merengues will claim the Primera Liga title and acknowledged that while the elimination from this year’s UEFA Champions League hurt, the team must accept responsibility for the quarter final exit.
The defeat to Lyon ensured that Madrid crashed out of the competition they have won nine times at the first knockout hurdle for the sixth season in succession.
That left them with just the Spanish title to fight for but the Portuguese is aiming to win all their remaining games to claim the title.
“I am confident we will win the league. We have eight games, eight finals and we will try to win them all. It is difficult but we will try,” he is quoted as saying by AS.
“The elimination from the Champions League hurt a lot, when I watch the matches I get very angry because we have the team to be there and it’s our own fault we are not.”
