Cristiano Ronaldo: Insists he has no plans to quit Real Madrid

The Portuguese star stated that he was feeling down after refusing to celebrate after scoring against Granada in early-September and speculation was rife about the reasons why.

"I play for the passion I have for football and for the love of the teams I represent. If I played for money, I would be at another club," he told France Football.

"All players love it when teams like Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United or Chelsea are linked to about them.

"Moving is not something I am thinking about though. I am happy at Real Madrid and I want to stay here and win things.

"What happens in the future is in the lap of the Gods. In life anything is possible and nothing is impossible, but for now I am not thinking about another club or a new contract."

Ronaldo is a contender for the Ballon d'Or and has no doubt that if he could then he would vote for himself after helping guide Madrid to the Spanish league title last term.

"If I could I would for myself to win the Ballon d'Or," the former Manchester United star explained.

"I am like I am and I am happy with that. To be humble is not good. In Portugal we say that to be too humble is vanity."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
