Cristiano Ronaldo: I'll be Champions League King

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his desire to lead United to Champions league glory this season, like in 1968 and 1999.

"Many times on television I've watched United winning the Champions league in 1999", said Ronaldo, "It looked incredible and It's something I want to do as well".

"I agree with Sir. Alex that United should have won it more than twice. This is a fantastic club with a great players and a great fans. It's a biggest club in the world". 

"We have the players to win the European Cup this year, we have the experience and we have the team. So we must have a great chance".

"It's a fantastic competition and every one of the lads wants to win the Champions League and go down in history at United."

After netting his 36th goal of the season in Rome on Tuesday night, Ronaldo could to become only the third player in United's history to reach the 40-goal mark in a single campaign. With six games left in the Premier League and potentially another four in Europe if United go all the way to the final in Moscow, it is hard to see Ronaldo failing to break the 40-goal barrier. 

"At the moment the team is brilliant, everyone is so confident. I feel the team is more mature and I'm more mature, too."

"We know that there is a big difference between the Champions League and the Premier League. But the way we are playing right now, we feel we can win both of them."
