Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid forward who’s a very big favourite with bookmakers around the world, said that in his career, a humble attitude was vital for his success.
Sports bookmaker services saw that during his time in the game, Ronaldo won titles with the Champions League in 2008, in England and Spain, as well as the Ballon d’Or.
And the Portuguese attacker believes that his own hard work helped him go to the top, along with his natural talent in the sport, and many bookmakers fully agree with the player.
“I think that it’s down to talent and the fact I’ve worked incredibly hard to achieve my objectives,” the 27-year-old told Fifa.com.
“You need to be humble enough to know what’s missing from your game and work towards it.
“Throughout my whole career I’ve always tried to learn, evolve and win trophies. I’m very ambitious, I always want to win and I’ll stay that way until I hang up my boots.”
Sports bookmaker services can see that Madrid are currently sitting 18 points behind Barcelona in their struggle to keep the title, and Ronaldo told his teammates to concentrate on the Champions League now. Bookmakers all over the world know very well how important this is for the team, and seriously hope that they do keep their focus.
“We haven’t started the championship very well for sure,” he continued.
“We know that La Liga’s an uphill struggle for us now, but nothing’s impossible in football. We’re going to work hard, win games and see what happens.
“Every Madridista wants that tenth European Cup – we’re more than aware of that. Last season we fell just short, which was very frustrating. Fortunately we’ve got the opportunity to set the record straight this year
Bookmakers all over the world that follow Real Madrid can’t wait to see how the team will continue to do on the pitch, and will keep a close eye on Ronaldo’s progress in the game.
