Cristiano Ronaldo, who also scored three goals in his debut last year, reacted to his hat-trick today on Twitter by praising his teammates and appealing to a spirit of camaraderie:
"I must thank my team for today's victory! I scored 3 goals thanks to my colleagues. We are a team! We will not win anything if we're not together. Hala Madrid!" Source: Twitter.com
Well! That's pretty much exactly what we all wanted to hear from Cristiano, especially after he scores so many goals. Contrary to public opinion, he's really not a diva--he may be many other things, but he definitely appreciates his teammates and his coach.
