“I'm very happy. We played a great match and we're deserved winners”, said the goal scorer.
Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed the Man of the Match award in the Club World Cup final. The Portuguese star scored the winning goal from a free-kick and he was thrilled to clinch another title with Real Madrid: “It's amazing. It was a trophy we wanted to win. We knew we were up against a good side. I'm very happy. We played a great game and we're deserved winners”.
 
“Real Madrid had never won five trophies in the same year, Zidane told us that and it really motivated us, we played a great game and we deserved the victory. The team did a brilliant job and we've picked up another trophy”.

Top scorer in the Club World Cup
"Records come naturally. Being top scorer in the Club World Cup makes me really happy. I talk to the players out there, that is my job, I try to give my best and make people enjoy my football. I am motivated to keep training, playing and enjoying my football, that is what I love”.

I STAY MOTIVATED SO THAT I CAN KEEP WINNING AT A COLLECTIVE AND INDIVIDUAL LEVEL.

“I do not need to constantly talk about myself. I spoke plenty the other week when I won the Ballon d'Or and I keep thinking the same. I am very confident and the numbers don't lie, they speak for themselves. I stay motivated so that i can keep winning at a collective and individual level”.
 
Retiring at Real Madrid?
“If possible yes, I'd like that. But it does not depend on me. What I do on the pitch is up to me. I'm not in charge of the club, it is the people at the top who are. I do my work on the pitch. If possible, then I would like to, we'll see”.
