Heading into the Copa del Rey final against Atletico on Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo spoke with ‘RealMadridTV’. “We have to make a good, strong start, the way this club, the best in the world, really plays. Just because the Bernabéu is split in half isn’t going to crush our ambition to win this cup,” he said.
Cristiano didn’t seemed fazed by the recent distractions involving his teammates and manager Jose Mourinho. “We’re ready and determined to win this title. On Friday, I hope that the team bus gets a reception similar to the one we got against Borussia Dortmund,” he remarked.
“It’s a trophy which really fires us up and we want to win it. We know that it will be a tightly contested game against a rival from the same city and it will be a great spectacle. We hope Real Madrid can win it.” Ronaldo will take his team up against a streaking Radamel Falcao and his Atletico de Madrid squad Friday night.
