Cristiano Ronaldo talked to Thailand's Morning News show during his holidays in the country.
"The greatest moment I've had at Real Madrid so far was winning the league title. In my opinion, it is the most difficult league championship in the world. We faced a very strong opponent like Barcelona and defeated them with a nine-point cushion. It was fantastic."
"I know I scored 46 goals in La Liga last season, but to be honest, I don't know how many I scored overall."
"I simply decided to take the fifth penalty against Spain in the Euro. I remember I missed the first in the penalty against Bayern Munich. I decided to take the fifth with Portugal, but anything could happen. People then ask why you don't take the first, second or third... It's just a decision based on something you feel at the time. Penalty shootouts are like a lottery. The best team doesn't always win. I just decided to take the fifth."
"I've really enjoyed myself these last 12 days in Thailand. The climate is fantastic, the food is excellent and people gave me a great welcome. I feel proud for being here. Thailand is, no doubt, the most beautiful place I've ever been in. It is marvelous and I'd like to come back. We went fishing four days and fished all sorts of fish. I love it; it allows me to relax."
