Manchester United striker, Cristiano Ronaldo has come out to say that he won’t accept anything lower than a top 3 finish this season. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the fact is that he is not going to settle for sixth place or seventh place in the EPL because that is not a mentality he is used to.
Ronaldo added that he hopes MUFC can return to the top level fans of the club want.
“I don’t accept that our mentality be less than being in the top three in the Premier League.”
“I think to build up good things, sometimes you have to destroy a few things. So why not – new year, new life and I hope that Manchester [United] can be the level that the fans want. They deserve that.”
“We are capable of changing things now. I know the way but I’m not going to mention it here because I don’t think it’s ethical on my part to say that.”
“What I can say is we can do better – all of us. Manchester [United] belongs to important things, so we have to change that.”
“I don’t want to be here to be in sixth place, or seventh place, or fifth place. I’m here to try to win, to compete.”
“I think we compete but we are not yet in our best level. But we have a long way to improve and I believe if we change our mind, we can achieve big things.”
“Not easy to be honest. We changed Ole, then [Michael] Carrick [caretaker manager], then this new coach. It’s difficult when you change so much, it’s always tough.”
“It’s always sad and tough. Ole used to play with me before and now he was the coach. A fantastic person. When he left everybody was sad, but it’s part of football.”
“When things don’t go the way the club wants, the club has to change. I was disappointed but we have to understand the club. It was difficult but life continues.”
“But I still believe that we are capable of doing a good season. We know it’s going to take time to make the ideas of the new coach on the pitch.”
“But I’m looking forward. We have to work hard, we have to be together as players. We know we are not in the best moment, but I believe with working hard we can achieve important things, even this year.”
