thumbnail Hello,

The Real Madrid star has warned Europe that the neo-Galacticos are ready to storm the continent.....

Cristiano Ronaldo was in buoyant mood as he looked ahead to the New Year. The most expensive footballer in history outlined his team's objectives in 2010 in an interview with Spanish sports daily Marca and made it clear that they want to displace Madrid's archrivals Barcelona as the best team in the world.

The Portuguese said, "Real Madrid will be the best team of 2010. We need to have the drive and motivation to win everything that comes our way.  

"Fans and players dream about winning the Champions League. This year's final is at the Santiago Bernabeu and it's a great opportunity for us.  

"Winning the Champions League [with Manchester United] was the greatest experience of my career and we don't want to let this opportunity slip through our fingers."

But the former Sporting Lisbon star warned that the Madrid supporters must not get obsessed with the Champions League and that the team should concentrate on regaining the Primera Division title as well.

"All this club talks about is Champions League, Champions League, Champions League, but we shouldn't because it puts a lot of pressure on the players.  

"It is better to continue doing what we are doing, which is winning games. Good things will happen, but the players don't need any added pressure.  

"Madrid needs to focus on winning the Champions League and La Liga, but it depends on other factors like luck, the draw. But I think we are going to win."
