Cristiano Ronaldo believes ‘too much humility isn’t good’ and predicts Real Madrid will ‘play a great game and are going to win’ the Champions League.
The Portuguese star, who has scored 14 goals in his last nine outings, has called on his teammates to show their talent in Saturday’s final against Italian champions Juventus in Cardiff.
“On the day of the game there is going to be a lot of nerves and I prefer not to think much about the final,” Ronaldo told Real Madrid TV.
“Too much humility isn’t good, we have to prove our character and who is the best.
“They are an excellent team but so are we. I have the feeling that we are going to play a great game and we are going to win.
“I feel very good, very good, a bit cold, but it’s better than having an injury, I’m better on a physical level compared to the last few seasons, also because I played less, although I am the one who played the most matches in the team.
“I feel better than I have in the last few years and I hope to help the team with goals on Saturday.
“The final is won by scoring goals. We were very reassured to win the league and now we have a unique opportunity. We are in an extraordinary moment.
“We can get a double, defend the title and enter the history of the Champions League. It’s a big motivation and there’s only one step left.”
