Ronaldo's goal took Real Madrid through to the quarter-finals

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."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
