Manchester United legend’s dream coming true – how?

Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is excited to play the Champions League final in his home country of Portugal.

Cristiano Ronaldo has already won the Champions League, but he is hungry to win it again.

Back in 2008, the Portugal international lifted the coveted trophy as a Manchester United player. A year later, he joined Real Madrid and has since then been striving hard to do the same.

After three successive years of failing to progress beyond the semi-finals, Los Blancos have a great chance of clinching the European Cup for the 10th time in their history on Saturday.

Interestingly, this year’s final will be played at Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, the capital of Ronaldo’s homeland. The 29-year-old is understandably excited at the prospect of winning his first Champions League crown in his own country with the world’s biggest club.

Ronaldo is a living legend – there are no two ways about it. While at United, there were suggestions that he often went missing in big games, he still won three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one Champions League.

At Madrid, the 2013 FIFA Ballon d’Or winner has matured and has been played more centrally in a more advanced position. Ronaldo has broken all sorts of records for Madrid, and he will be keen on adding another feather in the cap by guiding Los Blancos to their ‘La Decima’ by defeating city-rivals Atletico Madrid in the final on Saturday.
