Cristiano Ronaldo delivered some enigmatic quotes right after the final whistle of the 2018 Champions League Final. The Portuguese star wanted to explain his words and talked to the press again in mixed zone.

“I admit this wasn’t the right time to talk about this, but something is going to happen. Now we’re celebrating the title because we achieved something extraordinary,” said Ronaldo. “I talked and I shouldn’t have talked but I was honest. I will say more in a week because the fans have always been there and have a place in my heart,” added Ronaldo.

“This has been happening for quite some time and money is not the issue here. I’ve won five Champions Leagues, five Ballons D’Or...I had a place in history but now even more so. I’m not angry because I know the kind of contribution I give to the club. I don’t want to erase this unique moment with my teammates,” concluded Ronaldo.
