Ronaldo says he's focused on winning, not contract
MADRID (AFP) - Cristiano Ronaldo says he is focused on winning for Real Madrid and not on his contract, beating down speculation that he is unhappy with his reported 10-million-euro (S$15.8 million) salary.
Ronaldo shocked fans last week by declaring he was "sad" at the Spanish league champions without explaining why, except to insist later that it had nothing to do with money.
"I would like to reaffirm, without being concerned about contracts, that my focus is solely on winning every game and every available trophy with the essential company of my team-mates and all madridistas," Ronaldo said on his Facebook account on Wednesday evening, referring to the fans.
The Real Madrid star and Portugal international also said he was happy with his country's 3-0 victory over Azerbaijan on Tuesday.
