Despite stealing the show for his side in Seville with a quadruple, the Portuguese attacker was quick to pay tribute to others for their assistance
Despite scoring four goals in their 6-2 win away at Sevilla, Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo thanked his team-mates for their contribution to the victory, which comes as a confidence booster after their Champions League exit in midweek.
"To score four goals is not easy but you have to give credit to my team-mates because they helped me. I do not want to think about being the topscorer," Ronaldo told AS.
The world's most expensive footballer was pleased that his side managed the win after what has been a difficult week in the Spanish capital.
"After what happened in the Champions League, we wanted a good result and we got it. It is always important to win - the later they [Barcelona] win the league, the better. We have to win everything without thinking about Barcelona.
"It is a little disappointing [that we cannot win the league] but that is football. We will win our upcoming matches."
The Portugal international also took the time to reflect on the overall performance against Sevilla, as well as talk optimistically about next season.
"The team did great. We played well and to score six goals is not easy. We are all very happy. The players are motivated and the coach has given us a positive mindset with which to start next season strongly."
