I Score Goals Even When I'm Not Playing Well-Cristiano Ronaldo

Portuguese Int’l and Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo’s rendition filled the air after the Reds overcame Villarreal in a pulsating UEFA Champions League match at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo provided a “typical Man united” moment, bringing back Old Trafford's old memory after securing a 95th winner for Solskjaer’s team.

United were known in the days of Fergie as the kings of comebacks, that was exactly what Ronaldo brought back on Wednesday as he lashed home a lay-off from Jesse Lingard from a tight angle to give United a 2-1 victory over their Spanish rivals, Villarreal.

Speaking after the match, excited Cristiano said that, he did his job, even though that was the only chance he had in the game admitting that he wasn’t at his best on the pitch that night.

In his words, “It’s my job yeah. Yes, after the Telles goal, we believe because you know here in the stadium, the history that the club has is that, “this is possible to do it”. And then we believe, I said to the players the second time that we should believe. And it was good that I scored the goal in the 94 or 95 minutes, which made me feel very happy.”

“It is what it is though, the game tonight, wasn’t my best, I didn’t play so good. But sometimes I play so good, I don’t score but today I don’t play so good and I score.”
