World football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has declared that it is now time for Real Madrid to dominate European football once again.
The Portuguese international believes that the club’s new focus on teamwork under Jose Mourinho makes them better equipped to lift the Champions League trophy than last season.
Ronaldo told Sport Bild magazine that : “We are a very different Real from last season,”.
“The discipline has greatly improved. No one does things as an individual any more. The emphasis is on the team, and everyone has a clear role.
“Therefore we are playing with more determination, and there is more enjoyment in the game. Our coach Jose Mourinho has made decisive changes.
He knows what he has to do with us to win titles. Everything is fitting together so well that we really can win titles at the end of the season. The time is ripe again for Real Madrid.”
The former Manchester United star has also backed new team-mate Mesut Ozil to emulate his achievement of being named World Player of the Year at some point in his career.
“I hope and believe that he will win this title once,” Ronaldo said. “Mesut is a fantastic player, he has an extraordinary talent. I am enjoying playing with him at Real.”
