Cristiano Ronaldo admitted he felt emotional after putting his old club out of the Champions League.

Ronaldo scored the winner in the 2-1 win over 10-man Manchester United - his first return to Old Trafford since he left the club in 2009 - to put Real Madrid into the quarter-finals 3-2 on aggregate.

Afterwards he told Sky Sports: "It was emotional in both games, especially tonight, it was unbelievable.

"I don't have words to explain what I feel. I just have one word to say it is unbelievable.

"What the supporters did made me feel quite shy because in my opinion in both games I didn't play like I play all the time.

"But anyway I helped my team to score one goal home and away. I feel happy inside because Madrid got through but on the other hand I feel a little bit sad because Manchester United deserved (to win).

"But it's part of the football. It's feelings that stay in there and this doesn't change things."

The match swung on a red card shown to Nani while United were 1-0 up - a decision which incensed the home side.

Ronaldo added: "To be honest I didn't see the replay of what Nani did but these situations happen in football.

I'm not going to say any more because I didn't see the replay."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
