Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he remains hungry for new trophies, despite winning everything there is to win throughout his sparkling career at the highest level.
Ronaldo completed a sensational return to Manchester United over the summer and has started as he means to go on, with the scintillating 36-year-old bagging six goals in just eight games since confirmation of his second coming.
Ahead of Sunday’s meeting between his side and bitter rivals Liverpool, Ronaldo has been speaking to the media about his hunger to extend his long list of honours.
🗣 "I'm still motivated, I'm in a new chapter of my life."

“I win everything,” he said before pinpointing his hunger for continued success. “But I’m still motivated. I’m in a new chapter of my life. Even with my age and this is why I’m here – to try to win. I think Manchester (United) needs to be on this level.”
Stretty News Verdict
Ronaldo’s determination to win has not been lost on Manchester United supporters. He was visibly upset when Atalanta scored their second goal earlier this week and having the superstar forward in the squad will do his teammates the world of good.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus forward has made sure everyone knows his return isn’t for the want of a relaxing vacation, but rather another mission to become the best player in the world once again.
